Check out this work by Julia Clouser ('19)! "Through using my family's 8mm film archive as my source of information, I am exploring the presence that lost relationships have within a given space. I am altering this film by enlarging the area in-between its sprocket holes where the image bleeds out of the intended frame. These moments expose the aura that gets left behind in a landscape or relationship, while also acting as a metaphor for the space continuing to live in its own time, despite being forgotten." - @allwegrow

Check out this series of work by 1st yr suneat3rz'20 aka bonn! “Their work deals with myth and daily life of LGBT people. Finding the cosmic in the mundane, representing a sort of bittersweet reality, elevating the simple and LGBT people to the level of gods and heros, lowering myth to an attainable standard. The work mostly deals with love, but a more Platonic sense of it. The loneliness that acompanies being an LGBT person, ostrasized by socicety, their families, or even within their own community. In a similar way, they believe gods and heroes must be/have been very lonely. Most of their work has a musical element to it, music being a language of love, harking to the ideas of the muses, and dealing with the artists love for not only the creation, composition, and curation of music, but also songs roles as unifiers of the outcasts.” - @suneat3rz / c. 2018/19.

“In tantra drawings geometric forms are entities. They are not subscriptions. There is something very appeasing in geometric forms that are always without authorship, there is never signature in these forms, there is appropriation, use but they are always escaping us as if they say that this plane in which we live does not begin or end in us.” - FC (English)

“Nos desenhos tantra as formas geométricas são entidades. Não são assinaturas. Há qualquer coisa de muito apaziguador nas formas geométricas que são sempre sem autoria, não há nunca assinatura nessas formas, há apropriação, uso mas elas estão-nos sempre a escapar como se dissessem que este plano em que vivemos não começa nem acaba em nós.” - FC (Portuguese)
