Artist Note: Based off of a sculpture seen at a concept art shop in Paris, (un)Grounded explores the ideas of freedom and complacency. For centuries, birds have been a symbol of freedom, an ideal that so many of us strive for throughout most of our lives. However, freedom is not free of flaws, something that can be difficult to see while searching. As three young people finding this in our own lives, the subject matter is something close to us. In this piece, we strive to explore both the great strengths of freedom as well as the forgotten beauty of limitations.
-Come One, Come All-

The Lune Series
The Lune Series (pronounced like “loon”, or you can be fancy and pronounce the “e”) is our a monthly installment series. With each moon (or month or whatever) we aim to produce a new piece of art. This piece will hopefully be showcased in a larger performance of either our own or other’s work. (We love working and collaborating with others!)
While all the Lunes will be part of the same series, they are not innately sequels to each other. The Lune Series was born out of a desire to constantly create. The connecting tissue between all Lune pieces and performances is the overarching theme that (performance) art is what we love and what we want to do. That spirit is what drives us through our days until we can dedicate our time to our art (which typically happens with the rising of the moon, come nightfall).
