@ VOL 4 ON DEC 12, 2015

Artist Nina Yankowitz works with the technology of the day to highlight and challenge socio-political content since 1967, when she first exhibited her earliest draped, pleated, and sound imbued painting, “Oh Say Can You See” which disputed feminist and civil rights ethical injustices. As a ‘citizen scientist’ for over a decade, she infuses interactive technology into her environmental video projection installations to allow people to respond to options about climate change conditions and based upon their respective personal priorities, receive multiple perspectives about remediation.

Drawing to Document

@ VOL 10 ON JUL 27, 2019

The act of drawing is imbued with power: we draw to see, to record, to understand, to shape the world. Reflecting on her experiences documenting street protests, election rallies, and gatherings through on-site sketching, Charis Loke speaks about the importance of drawing - for anyone, everyone - as a way to bear witness and be in the world.

A former resident artist at Rimbun Dahan, Charis also makes illustrated microfiction inspired by SEA when she's not working on publishing or nonprofit projects. She designs geeky baju, sketched the 14th General Elections, and explained asexuality by way of sambal. Her work has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators Los Angeles and shown at Light Grey Art Lab as well as other galleries around the world.

Laser walls, UV inks, lit scaffolding structures, and light forms of all kinds; James Clar's work is nothing short of brilliant.
