Call to Artists: "Silence in Chaos," digital and sound collage 

"The central theme of this year’s KAOS Festival of Contemporary Collage is Silence in Chaos. At a time when the world is gripped by uncertainty, anxiety, confusion, fear, lack of closeness and freedom, unrest, the weight of anticipation and a lack of trust, epidemic situations are emerging on how to rebalance and find new normality. If silence is the one that sometimes helps us to see things, it can be disturbing on the other hand if there is too much of it. Have we created our own bubble in the world, in which we are mostly silent? Is silence the only way to endure an unbearable state of despair and melancholy? This year, KAOS is questioning the meaning of silence, exploring the relationship between silence and sound and sound or silence and the visual. It discovers the silence in the collage and questions it. It searches for answers and shouts with sound and digital collages."

Another from today. I'm calling this one "affirmations". Pieces are from a community college catalog, a high school health worksheet, and the background article is from an interview with Chelsea Manning.

Here's a quickie cobbled together from a community college catalog and a high school sex ed worksheet (CW: genital diagram). The idea was all @sherbet_marcuse's, I just executed it.

All finished! I'm calling this one "born in a bathtub, raised in a swamp." What can I say, I like goo girls and I think there should be more of them.

Materials came from Seventeen and Vogue magazines; Baker Creek, Fungi Perfecti, and Wild Garden Seed catalogues; and some gift wrapping. Completed over several hours today from initial idea to finish.

This is the first collage I made that wasn't a school project! When I was 11 my older stepsister (an artist) sat me down with a cigar box, a stack of magazines, and some mod podge, and this is the result. I think I might go back and fill in the sides, because there's a bunch of empty space.

A for my mom, who is currently experiencing her second and making some difficult decisions. Intended as a focus for workings, as an altar or shrine piece, or just as some cool art from her kid.

collage with lewd implications 

I'm back on my bullshit lmao. All the descriptive words here are from ads for makeup, skincare, and menstrual products.

Finished! Thanks for voting, everyone. This lives on my fridge now.

nudity in art 

Here's a little standalone that happened as a byproduct of my fridge magnet session. I'd been trying to decide what to do with this painting and the nipple quote for a year.

art with food plants, genital trauma, gender 

Another fridge magnet. Thanks to my partner @sherbet_marcuse for creative direction (I mean, they help much of the time, but I especially needed input and focus on this one).

Another magnet. idk what it means either, it came together as I was sifting through my papers.

food plant in art 

First in a series of fridge magnets! My magnets were all old work calendars and ads from my health insurance provider, and I was sick of looking at them.

Help me decide which of these phrases to add to a tiny ! My partner picked the best four, y'all get to make the final decision.
