Sabrina Carrier is an experimental artist from New Jersey. Her work revolves around innovation and pushing the boundaries of what multimedia art can be. Her fascination with music at an early age is what inspires her techniques in experimental sound. More specifically, she deconstructs music and composes it into something entirely different and abstract. She plans on working in the sound design and audio engineering field once she graduates in may 2021 with a BFA in Kinetic Imaging.
Ian Donegan is a multimedia artist based in Richmond, Virginia. Born in Flagstaff, Arizona in 1998 and raised in rural Virginia, his work combines animation, painting, collage, and video to explore humans’ relationship with nature from evolutionary and spiritual perspectives. Uncovering harmonies between the internal world of the mind and the external world of matter, he works with themes of illusion, projection, and consciousness. He will graduate from Virginia Commonwealth University in May 2021 with a BFA in Kinetic Imaging.
Cate Duckwall (b. 2000) captures the essence of moments that tend to go unnoticed and attempts to give them a platform among the chaos that is constantly occurring in the world. Born in Roanoke, Virginia, she has integrated her photography skills and unique design practices to create strong imagery while maintaining a balance between aesthetics and functionality. Her work is generally experimental in which she combines different mediums in distinct ways to support her interest in video, animation, and other emerging media. Cate is set to graduate from Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of the Arts with a BFA in Kinetic Imaging in December of 2021.

Born in Johnson City, Tennessee in 1999, and raised in rural Virginia, her love of weaving compelling narratives and characters began at a very young age and continues to this day.

Hannah will be graduating in May 2021 with a BFA in Kinetic Imaging and a minor in Art History.
