SQ: This fall, I will start my final year of college at The New School, which will be unlike any previous year. I would love to keep working with textiles and soft goods more directly with the production process but I�m not quite certain how realistic that is with the pandemic. I dream of working closely with artisans in the various natural dying processes and weaving techniques. I�d also like to integrate my textile work with my performance practice, which may show up in my Spring thesis. I�m constantly introducing new elements to my practice and finding ways to integrate trades. At this moment, I�d like to work for another artist who has a vast art practice like myself in New York and just keep playing.
What are your plans for the near future? Far future?�MS: My plans for the near future are to finish my fourth and final year and then hopefully grad school. I want to keep making, and keep meeting people and keep building community!�KM: My plans for the future are to continue and graduate from UIC and begin working in product design. My interests range from product photography to UX design. I have been passionate for years about the subject of the representation of minorities in film and that enthusiasm has burned into the issues of design and healthy environmental development. My goal is to take Afrocentric concepts and fuse them with futurism, exploring the possibilities with biomorphic design. I aspire to create a hub for artists, technologists, and engineers from diverse backgrounds to come together to envision and create a future where we are all considered.
SQ: When quarantine started, I was still studying in London and despite much heated debate I decided to stay in the UK. It was a very heavy decision and I felt incredibly emotional since no one knew what would come out of the circumstance. I was creatively strong in London and was working non-stop on developing new performance pieces. But I was still in school and found it difficult to navigate my personal practice with online school and being confined�it was awful, I�m going to be honest. I missed having in-person classes. There is a sacred and undeniable joy about being in physical community with others and learning from a mentor who can highlight your art practice. It wasn�t until I arrived in Minneapolis in June that I was really brought back to the ground and inspiration ran more fluidly. I was inspired to make a little studio in my basement where I could be alone and just make, make, make.
