Phase 1 // URL: FALL 

Throughout November, the YFVI cohort is using the digital (or analog) world to engage with the theme:  To Stay Alive /| You Must be Live. 

The cohort has started meeting digitally-- sparking conversations over connections in each others' work, their relationships with the digital world, and brewing ideas for experiments during each of the phases. The nature of this year-long engagement is mercurial, and already it is shapeshifting! 


For the duration of Phase I, we have decided to provide weekly updates on the fluid engagements happening, with details of when and where you'll be able to tune in. You can expect a newsletter every Thursday, an Instagram update every Monday, and the website will be updated as details shift into place.

THIS WEEK // stay tuned as this changes daily...

Annabel Turrado // 'Mending'

It severs, it separates units, it cuts and splits families apart. It cuts hearts in half. ICE has torn apart 4,368 families and there's still so much we need to do in order to alleviate the anguish it has created. Here I sew halves of hearts back together in a figurative attempt to mend the effects that ICE has had on people. This is my version of mending the broken hearted. It is my hope that they see justice so their healing begins and they are made whole again.

Saira Barbaric // Studio Visit live stream via Twitch

"Masked dancing and performance are the center of my artistic practice. There I get to become what I draw and dream. The Fates and the Ghede meet to inspire my SkullGuard a group of bone-faced mystics watching over makers and the unsane."


"On 11/28, I start my building of a new face. I am welcoming others into a digital studio visit where I sketch, chat and formulate the pattern for a fresh skull face."
