We are presenting a visual manifest of the artistic and cultural creation process by emphasizing values placed on the production and handling of artistic goods. Our manifest takes place in local, global and digital contexts. We are fascinated by systems of manufacture for art and culture as opposed to the romantic notion of the artist laboring in solitude within their studio. Here, places and objects compose and materialize cultural identity. Artistic meaning is not only found in a finished artwork. From planning to execution, it is embodied in every stage of the fabrication process. These works investigate how cultural traditions can be expressed in the different processes of making, collecting and preserving.
