Bella Kubo

Bella Kubo is an interdisciplinary artist from Detroit, Michigan. Kubo uses video, sculpture, sound, performance, and installation to investigate and recontextualize comforts in the mundane. She is particularly interested in the concept of the home as a habitat. Kubo believes this notion specifies one’s environment, the state of one’s environment, one’s species, and one’s relationship to their environment. Being someone who has relocated and moved throughout their entire life, Kubo is constantly analyzing and questioning the importance of place.

Chad Mundie

Chad Mundie (b. 1996, Fredericksburg, VA) works with video and sculpture to build dreamlike domestic scenes and assemblages that look to subvert the icon of the suburban home and the illusion of a perfect American life. An intruder living within the walls of a home plays cat and mouse with the unsuspecting owner, A plume of smoke rises from the shower drain, a man unbuttons his shirt to reveal a window. Through his practice he explores the boundaries of space, family, adolescence, memory, gaze, and tradition.

maker and poet 

 

I compose and animate light, space and sound with public and personal archive material. I take Black aesthetics, embellish them with Black things, pull aesthetics apart, and reimagine Black citing the miraculous of the mundane. The composite icons are made and shared as sketches of sonic memory and vernacular acts of care.

Lindsey Arturo

LNZ aka cloudface aka 2phones aka margaritaville39 aka peacedude aka youngyounghonda aka lazyArtu aka harvey aka accidentalpizza aka me, is an internet artist b.1990. I explore the internet through an ever growing list of online handles/identities and videos. By blurring irl/url presence into hyperreal worlds, I question and playfully critique the internet & “tEcHNoloGy” as a seductively efficient disaster.

Kaitlyn Paston

I work between video, sound, animation, and installation. Using vocalization, movement and mark-making, I filter ideas through the body and edit in an ongoing process of collage. I’m interested in bodies’ relationship to media and subjective experiences of space and time. Starting with text or narrative,  I sift through layers of performance and disassemble language to explore the ways in which meaning shifts through repetition, musicality, emotion, duration, and altered modes of listening.

Samson Stillwell

Hi, I’m Samson. I make art works that often combine many different mediums although sometimes they are just sculptures. I’m pretty concerned about the world and skeptical of the role of the artist within it. I love sharing and I like being around people. I have participated frequently in artist-run project spaces, especially around New York City such as Gern en Regalia, Mole End, and Triest and online at Soloshow.online and Sukkot.xyz. I’m happy to be here.
