Edelweiss Cardenas

Edelweiss Cardenas“As a fine artist, I am motivated by the idea of empathy. By portraying first person reactions to real-world struggles such as poverty, disease, violence, and immigration, I create pieces that explore different ideas of identity, borders, and kinship to inspire wonder and social action. My themes and approach lend themselves to collaboration, and I am looking forward to working with other artists on dynamic, socially aware, creative projects.”

Hsuan Hsiu Hung“I love movement and to explore movement with the body and mind. My works include movement, visual art and contemplative practice in the process. And I have collaborated with different artists to created choreography, performance and video together. I enjoy working with people: children, adult, or anyone who would like to invite creative process into their life. My wish is to share many creative tools that I have found during my artistic journey with them, to provide these tools for expression and for discovering oneself.”
