The Revenge of Aqua Fiends: Clear Water/ CLASS

My biggest print to date was created this year at 36” by 56”. This screen-print on mylar with Jacquard Ink is about the importance of drinking water and how we overwork/overindulge ourselves ingesting all this junk when all our bodies beg for is water to survive. Expanding on that idea after printing an edition of 6 and seeing the little imperfections that make them unique in their own way. I decided to glitch the edition digitally using text edit then animate them together to show that these imperfections make them what they are. I would then project the animation on a print to make this point of just loving yourself and who you are.

CLASS is a collective of comedians, visual artists, and musicians. Its current members consist of myself, Dylan Bonneville, Zack Hayward, Deshaun Molloy, Cameron Kirk, Baylee Bonnell, Emmett J. O'Neill, and Andriy Komarnytskyy. We organize shows, and videos that have the look of variety shows utilizing the combination of mutual friends of local Toronto bands, comedians, but also surrounds the audience in an immersive experience of being surrounded by art.
