Inspired by the writings of Rimbaud and Victorian mourning attire, Gail Chovan gives exaggerated form to the long deceased by adorning apparitions in hyper-stylized garments and accessories from the past. Chovan uses fragments and fabrication to enshroud memories, gives form to absence and celebrates remnants as potent vehicles for resuscitation.

In Paved Paradise, Julie Libersat explores symmetry and patterns within the landscape of late capitalism. Using the shopping mall and the parking lot as formal and conceptual frameworks, the interactive video installation explores a suburban vernacular that presents consumption as a modern form of worship. Paved Paradise is part of an ongoing series of parking lot mazes executed through various virtual and physical mediums. Libersat explores everyday landscapes and infrastructure to reflect on our cultural, social, and economic orientations. Paved Paradise presents the shopping mall as a temple of the golden age of capitalism and the parking lot as a meditation.

With the sun as her source and subject, Krista Steinke explores the physical and psychological impact of our greatest energy source. Her project incorporates video, personal narrative, and experimental photographic processes, creating a multi-layered dialogue about our dual relationship with the sun - essential for life on this planet while also, a potential threat of doom and destruction. In this new body of work, the sun’s pathway becomes a drawing tool or mark making system, collapsing time and space and unfolding how day to day experiences fit into the larger scheme of things.

"Can place and its surroundings dictate how people dress, think and behave?" is the central question in Meg Aubrey's work. She acts as a viewer within her own community to analyze the behaviors of the residence and record the activities and emotions that she sees. The planned communities of suburbia have become her laboratory where she scrutinizes daily activities and behaviors, asking questions about how this chosen lifestyle can rob people of their individualism under the facade of beauty, order, and security.

Many Mini Murder Scenes, an installation consisting of series of rooms constructed in miniature is based on crime scenes plucked from fiction.
