My fellow Americans, during these extraordinary times, I have found great solace in our shared collective experience. I’ve felt connected more than ever. However we each need to pass our time, one thing is for certain. Artists will make art with or without a market. Artists make art in peace and in war. With money or without. Slipping through political regimes subversively, or proudly posting from their own private bubble. Artists find material even in a thinned out place. Memes have been empowered to Folk Art status. Our absorption of media, phone calls and food meld together and reveal the new animal we are. While grazing through a media feed, what causes your finger to pause? Advertisers and app developers are well versed in what it takes to make you linger. With million dollar budgets they’re fighting for a fraction of a second of your eyes' attention. And ultimately a way to keep you coming back.
Unraveling is not an attempt to migrate a gallery experience to an online platform, but rather a way to acclimate to a new way of online art presentation, using the ways that we have already been comfortable with. Throughout the duration of the month these artists' works will be released with each new episode. Paintings will be enabled with extra viewing zoom-in capabilities and sculptures will have their own commercials to comprehend them spatially. Works will include more peripheral viewing materials and tools, and some will have crowd-sourced interactivity features. The view the exhibition click on VIEW WORKS on this page.

Now that we are starting to see what kind of world we're left with, knowing we can't change the past, If we are honest with the present it brought us to, we can work together to make a better future for everyone.
