KENDALLE FIASCO : Discomfort is good for the psyche. Convenience is bad for the intellect. Raw, naked, wordless experience, when successfully executed and successfully received, may lead to some wordless, awe-some, and perhaps slightly terrifying experience—terrifying in its unbiased honesty. I believe in disruptive de-contextualization. I believe in visual allegory, perverting the signs we take for granted in our daily, mundane lives. I believe in touching the raw and nameless YOU.
IRINA MAKAROVA : I wanted to turn my self destructive experiment into a dark joke. To display the intentions of the carnivores, laugh alongside and in the end pervert their perversions.
ERIC “EASY” ZHANG: “I’m only attracted to Asian guys.” “Asian girls are so hot.” “I only went out with you because you’re Asian.” Fetishism is racism, and racism is fetishism.
