Our recent call for submissions focused on the topic of Environment. Here’s the first installment in our two-part curated series featuring selected artworks.

This first part explores themes of dematerialization, transformation, liquidity, traces and toxicity, largely via a visual language of light, reflection and transparency. Through diverse media — including photography, digital art, installation, wearable art, and more — many of these projects also examine the changing relationship between nature and technology, environment and functionality.

Featured artworks by Scarlett Yang, Beatriz Glez Sa, Tania Bohuslavska, Kayla Elrod and Aleksander Filipiak, Benjamin K. Foley, Julija Goyd, Matilda Hallander, Anastasia Koroleva, and State Studio.
