Amber Eagle, Rosebud, 2014

Eagle is inspired by ancient alien astronauts and outer space, as well as the richness of the Mexican culture. Using ancient aliens as a metaphor, she refers to “the stranger in us all” in addition to “illegal aliens”, to guide the viewer to look inward to our own enigmatic inner space. Eagle has collaborated with Mexican craftspeople, her husband Guillermo Rosas, carpenters, electricians, mechanics and seamstresses to produce this body of work.

Dion Laurent, Airplane1, EarthMan2 and EarthRover1, 2011-2013

Dion Laurent’s travels are reflected in his multimedia transdisciplinary artworks with an immediacy and provocative attitude, invoking a social and environmental discourse. In Earth Man and AirPlane1, he references and appropriates techniques from both art and science, Laurent believes we should “wake up and act globally” through the emulation of the conditions of living in outer space here within the extremes of Planet Earth.
