If ‘thought is the wind, knowledge the sail, and mankind the vessel’ Michael Kahn surely caught the wind and set forth his sail to explore, dream and discover the ebb and flows of life. In the contrast of light and darkness do the protagonists of his play reveal their characters, frozen in time; the boats, the marine scenery soaking in the light and sometimes the dearth of it, all become unified in a grand scheme of things. And this masterful story-teller from Southern Pennsylvania continues on his journey for the next sparkle on the wave, however far from shore may it be.
Sarolta Bán was a jewellery designer till photography caught her fancy. While playing with digital photo-manipulation techniques she fell in love with this art of visual story-telling. Ever since then the girl born in Budapest, Hungary in 1982, produced great works of photography that not only have viewers glued to them but also have the power of ‘conversations’ with the audience with each picture being worth a ‘thousand words’ if not more!
Vanessa Harden thinks deeply about the social and environmental concerns that plague our lives everyday and her designs, often merging the perceived distinction of art and science, try to resolve those issues on a physical plane. From seed pill to increase the greenery of the city to biodegradable tent to dynamic street light to reduce energy consumption every creative endeavour of Vanessa’s are proofs of such sensitivity towards planet earth presented with artistic aestheticism.
Born in 1980, Santa Rosa, California and current resident of New York, Clark Goolsby’s imagination has long escaped the velocity to take refugee into the rainbow of the sky that his own hand painted with so much love and care. However, his flights of fancy do not make him apathetic about the concerns of his fellow humankind, the plight of which often intermingle with the intricacy of the design or the bright hues in presentations.
Fionn McCabe studied printmaking at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. After completion of his studies there he devoted a number of years working as a commercial printer. This proved to be quite different from his idealized vision of printing and art designing. What seemed to him a way of creative expressions designing and printing cool posters and other artworks turned out to be a 7:30 – 4:30pm job of dreadful monotony. He finally decided to call it a quit and went about his own way as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer.
