Internship: Tabita Rezaire,

'Vessels of Home' seeks moments of belonging through the creation of rituals, artifacts, and myths. Weaving together past, present and future; making circles in time and space. The quilt represents the slow building of stories culminating in a web of ancestral history. Images framed in ceramics become portals to mundane and magical worlds, placing emphasis on the sacredness of nature. Slowly moving visuals provide an opportunity to connect to one’s bodily presence. Moonlion searches for an understanding of horizontal transcendence. How can we sustain a world where humans stand equal to blades of grass, and where identity and institution no longer hold all power?
