Are You A Cake or a Crumz

September 13th at 12:00am

Step into Mrs. Debbie Cake's office as she works with her nosey receptionist and an alter ego named "Mrs. VI" to help others identify their 80/20: 80% is what they need to be happy, and 20% is what they can compromise. What happens when they compromise more than 20% and end up feeling "crumzy"? Watch six individuals search for help with their crumzy situations and find solutions -- because sometimes the person who needs to be fixed just might be in the mirror.

Waiting...

On Demand

A movement piece in digital art medium, an attempt at blurring boundaries of disciplines. "I am waiting." This statement is related to many narratives, goals, relationships, mundane every day events, and abstract thoughts about internal and external waiting. Waiting between time, spaces, objects, nature and nurture; waiting consciously or subconsciously for long periods of time. The smallest act of waiting to the indefinite ones. Our experience of waiting is different in infinite ways, even while we share same space, time, and event.
