An artist living and working in Chattanooga, Tennessee. After working with various media at an early age she fell in love with collage. The subject of the piece is often influenced by the materials as opposed to building around a sketch or idea. As well as various publications you can see her work in galleries and art boutiques both in the US and abroad.
~ Maile Colbert ~
 An intermedia artist with a concentration on sound and video, living in Lisbon, Portugal and teaching at Faculdade de Belas Artes, Universidade Porto.  She spent the last three years collaborating with the organization Binaural/Nodar, and is an ongoing contributor of articles on Acoustic Ecology at “Sounding Out”, the award winning sound journal.  She holds a BFA in Studio for Interrelated Media from Mass Art, and a MFA in Integrated Media/Film and Video from the Calarts. She has had multiple screenings, exhibits, and shows, including The New York Film Festival, Ear to Earth Festival for Electronic Music Foundation, LACE, MOMA, LACMA, the REDCAT Theater in Los Angeles, The PDX Film Festival, Future Places Festival in Oporto, HOERENSEHEN 2.0 in Berlin, Störung Festival in Barcelona, Teatra Municipal in Guarda, Observitori Festival in Valencia, The Exchange in Cornwall, UK, and has performed and screened widely in Japan, Europe, and the Americas.

~ Emmanuel Polanco ~
Oct. 29, 1977 in Paris, France. He explores through the prism from melancholy the various states of the human soul. Anxiety, nature, death, myths, ghosts and dreams are recurring topics in his artwork. His means of expressions are collage and drawing on antique materials. He is influenced by Flemish painting and by the Hispanic painting. He is also an illustrator. He works with international magazine (Time magazine, LA Times, Monocle, Philosophie magazine etc…), publisher (Penguin, Gallimard etc…) and Theater (The Royal Shakespeare Company).
     ~ Josefa Horta ~
 Her name is Josefa. She lives in a tiny studio apartment with her boyfriend and cat. Josefa is studying History at University of Baltimore. She is an assistant at the Archive Dept at her school. She wishes to one day become a Historian/Archivist. She collects old things, especially things left behind from other people. She has a large suitcase filled with old letters. Some of the letters are from people she knew in her past, and some she never met. Josefa enjoys adventuring alone and during her times alone she finds the most beautiful lonely places. In one of her recent adventures she captures a lonely place during a cold winter in Baltimore. Josefa is not an artist, she enjoys daydreaming.

     ~ Ava Alamshah ~
 A 2005 Calarts graduate, Ava Alamshah has been a dreamer and collector since childhood. Nostalgic by nature, photography is a means to explore and collect memories. Focusing on landscapes, architecture, and people with a dreamy naivety, she is currently working on a portrait series about friendship. Ava has exhibited work in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

     ~ Colette Saint Yves ~
 I was born in 1987 in France. Since my childhood, I'm interested in animated and immobile images. I use different medias to produce my work { video, photography, collage }

At the same time as my personal work, I study cinema at the University of Lille.

Exhibiting and curating internationally, Atkinson's work has been shown in South Africa, Australia, Europe, Mexico, Canada, throughout the USA, and in the Fifth Havana Biennial in Cuba and the 2011 Biennale de Paris. She has a Ted Talk on hybrid careers for artists at http://youtu.be/IehUM7XxJNU. Karen created the GYST software for artists from scratch and in 2000 she founded GYST as an artist-run professional practices service company. Currently, Atkinson chooses to focus on making life better for artists and less on exhibiting her own work. 
     ~ Noelle Maline ~
 She grew up by the sea in California.. Noelle studied photography at a mountaineering school in the Colorado Rockies and attended California Institute of the Arts for a short while. Noelle then took a few years off for traveling and research. During this time, she won the Art of California Gold Award, had many exhibits and collaborated with many artists... Thereupon, she went back to complete her degree at Cal Arts for installation, art and experimental sound. Some of her most recent projects have been installations of hidden rooms, a traveling gallery in an old trailer and sound performances to lost film projections. 

     ~ James D. Olsen ~
 James grew up in the mountains around many trees and dirt paths. He has an extensive mushroom memorabilia collection that has been accumulating since the age of fifteen. When James is not playing his bass in a doom/funk band, He is building custom bicycles and working on sound sculptures using old speakers and telephones in his garage... He studied film, sound and art and Cal Arts and sleeps in an old fishing trailer in his backyard.
     ~ Mt Whateverest ~
 From Grass Valley, Ca...
Mount Whateverest create a noisy collision of sugar-coated pop, space-jazz ambiance and giant, classic rock riffs. Armed with distortion boxes, tambourines and lots of extra oxygen, they are so high, they're breaking through into the bottom of something else entirely.
