Lost in Time by Kevin Sagara

Artist name Kevin Sagara
Artwork Description:

Lost in Time is a work based on what is lost as society progresses alongside technology.

Kevin Sagara Gallery Room
Lost in Time stems from the idea of memento mori, or "Remember that you must die". We usually apply this concept of death to living beings because if one is alive then eventually there will be a point where one dies. However, this can be applied to topics such as language and society. Language constantly evolves and dies along the populace that speaks said language. Something I wanted to cover in this project how the value of words has decreasing due to the presence of social media platforms.

Before After

Artist name Matthew DeWitt
Artwork Description:

Before After is about the importance of one’s own sense of identity. In an ever-materialistic world, self worth becomes more easily attached to one’s material standing–or wealth– and thus, material has become more and more a part of one’s sense of identity. With things like popular culture, social media, and the internet, there are many ways in which one’s sense of identity can be swayed or influenced by outside factors. Before After challenges the viewer to remove all sense of material from their definitions of themselves. Put simply, Before After is a story of one who pushed all of those ideas out of the frame of thought when deciding who they were, what they were, and why they were. Upon seeing this work, I want the viewer to realize that they have the agency to define themselves in the way that is true to them and thus have the power to own their reality.

Overcooked

Artist name Patty Ngo
Artwork Description:

You're invited over for a cozy home-cooked meal inside Patty Ngo's "Overcooked" exhibition. Overcooked is a series of 3D models that portray the struggles of being a daughter in a traditional Asian family. As a child of immigrant parents, I have always felt pressure to achieve what my parents anticipated. There are high expectations that Asian parents have for their daughters. We are expected to live up to Asian beauty standards that are defined by colorism and fatphobia. We must take care of those around us, but are seen as selfish when we care for ourselves. These draining standards take a huge toll on mental health. Overcooked depicts these feelings of frustration and burnout through images of food since food is such a powerful communicator. My family is not the type to show affection towards each other, but one of the ways we show our care is through providing meals. Because of this, I find myself cooking for the people I care about. This book is a collection of some of my favorite recipes. As you flip through these pages, you will learn more about the challenges of the women featured in Overcooked.

Power Is Energy

Artist name Dante Livingston
Artwork Description:

Power and energy are one and the same, although the two can be confused in modern contexts. Our own power consumption day by day, often goes unnoticed. In creating this exhibit, I want to explore the ideas of power consumption and production and their impact in ways we may not necessarily associate with building a new power plant or reactor.

Gho$t World Collection

Artist name Cris Gutierrez
Artwork Description:

Gho$t World is an NFT series created by Digital Media Artist Cris Gutierrez. The concept behind this NFT collection is to reconcile with others on a trope that you may or may not have used in your lifetime. That saying in question is "going ghost", this might seem like a confusing phrase that might not make sense. But for some viewers out there this could be everything. At the times of our growth and elevation in life, there are often times when we do not want to be bombarded by others not that we are selfish but because we are focusing on our future. Many of us had to "go ghost" in our life where we escape from the stress of the world in order to realign our lives and care solely for ourselves. This collection is meant to reassure and connect with those who feel they have needed to step back in the dark in order to shine. A validation that you are not a selfish person for wanting to care about yourself and your future.
