Thurs Feb 22nd 7pm – 9pm
Feature Writers: HD Artemis & Clare Ultimo
HD Artemis writes from the shattered places. When something smashes into her feeling aspect, her psyche, she start there. She often revisits the scene of the crime after the cameras cease to click, the mudslide takes out half the town, the dandelion buckles the sidewalk. For inspirations, she looks into the refractions of broken glass, follow the tumbleweed, watch the crows who pick the bones. If she can work in an archetypal metaphor or mythological creature, so much the better.
Clare Ultimo is an artist, designer and educator who was born and still lives in Brooklyn. Currently, she writes about breaking the rules in a politically correct world.
