Each artist has created a particular language that collectively can be seen as a metaphor for how we remember and communicate through the printed form. Felix Plaza collects and displays a colorful grid of pop and historical imagery. Daniel Vasquez and Theresa Bloise make prints that evoke pictographic languages that might be used to write a new history of the world. Gianluca Rossitto allows us to see traces of the the image as it quickly fades into memory, while Golnar Adili's image insists upon its existence through obsessive stitching onto the printed surface.
