We touch, taste, smell, hear, and see the world around us, assembling our notions of what is though our five senses. Sharing those impressions, we develop a social consensus of reality and orient around the surety of that consensus.


A valued function of the artist is to offer alternative interpretations of what is by modelling what-might-be. Those models present innovative ways of perceiving, thinking, and responding to our changing environments.
