Our work can be classified into six general themes. Our memoirs ask that the self be re-examined, we reflect upon our consumptive habits, discover new avenues for self-care, create new solutions for problems, articulate ourselves in new ways, and generate fresh questions to be explored.
The projects in this section can be considered as memoirs. Through these memoirs, we expose the stories a society tells us, and the stories we tell ourselves, in an effort to examine the self in ways that are contemporary.

Every new advancement brings new problems to be addressed, as well as a laundry list of old ones that are further exacerbated by progress. The projects here propose possible solutions and prospective actions to problems that range from deeply contemporary, to those that are seemingly intractable.

Consumption is built into human existence, we must consume air, water, and food to survive. This impulse to consume has given rise to some of our greatest achievements and gravest failings. The projects in this section seek to examine our impulse to consume, and shed light on how it affects us and the world around us.

Self-care might be a comparatively new phrase in the modern lexicon, but the impulse to nurture ourselves is an ancient one. The projects in this section propose new ideas for how we can cultivate the best sides of ourselves without losing sight of our place within the collective whole.

The ways in which we express ourselves are ever-changing. Now those changes are happening even more rapidly, keeping pace with the changes in our technological and cultural landscapes. The projects here all address our need for new thinking about how we articulate ourselves in an ever-changing world.

With forward movement comes new obstacles, and obstacles are questions waiting to be answered. The projects here raise the questions that have been posed by the progress we have made, and re-articulate old questions that are yet to be answered.
