“In our day-to-day lives, excessive choice and quantity await us relying on the very things we choose to ignore, discard, and overlook. As one of the billions of consumers, my work presents an understanding of everyday life as it is influenced by mass media.”
— Bai Yang Qiu, from artist statement
“The aim of this work is to explore the various definitions and conceptions of the “internal,” not only as related to the human body but also its relationship to the mind. It defines and constructs a place for meditation, creativity and self-examination, all actions encompassing private dialogue that claims the body as an intimate private space.”
— Lucha Rodriguez, from artist statement
