37 Four stage & 3 months in-betweenRomo, VanessaTime stops right before change occurs. As you cease to exist in your usual state of mind, you find yourself alone, reflecting, and ask what lies ahead?

40 Hand to mouthRamachandran, Sylvia MeenaJust as we make tools to try to overcome our limitations, we make gestures to try to connect with people and things beyond ourselves.

42 Herbarium obscura: shadow of natureRivera, Nancy E.Nature is ephemeral, fragile, and wild. Over time, we have learned to tame and control it: We grow lawns, cultivate houseplants, and manufacture synthetic facsimiles of nature for aesthetic and ornamental purposes. In this way and more, we manipulate how we experience and understand it. In my exhibi...Art/Art History2016
43 Iconography of the trailBrunvand, Sandra LynneA focusing element in my work is to confront the theme of life and death and how this dichotomy could be cast as metamorphoses of states of being.

The power o...Art/Art History1996-06

48 Language and fragmentationBlundell, Simon HenryAs our environment becomes increasingly mediated, so does our experience. My work is a direct response to an overmediated enviroment.
