Indigo

Lea Thomas is a multidisciplinary artist and musician living in Brooklyn, NY. Originally from the island of Maui, Hawaii, Lea moved to New York at 17 to further her study of audio engineering. Over the years she has incorporated the practices of traditional Western herbalism and weaving to build a healthy, rounded, and beautiful life. ‘Currents’ a solo exhibition of her fiber art, was on view at Trestle Gallery in Brooklyn in late spring. Her woven work, varied and responsive in its different iterations, is characterized by tonal harmony and connectivity of textures, and an abiding appreciation for the natural world: its beauties, its trials, its complexities, its resources. Her next album, a collaborative release with musician John Thayer, is entitled Blue of Distance and is due out October 4 via Spirit House Records.

Independents and the environment // Stack Event

Arguably the greatest challenge facing us today, the environmental crisis can seem impossibly overwhelming. Covering a wide range of interrelated factors, it encompasses climate change, waste disposal, energy production, deforestation, and the pollution of the air and oceans.

Faced with such an onslaught of bad news it’s tempting to look away, but a growing number of independent publishers are choosing instead to engage with the problems, producing magazines that raise awareness and promote practical, positive solutions. For this Stack Live event, Stack will be bringing together some of the most interesting independent magazines dedicated entirely to environmental issues, to understand how they make an impact, inspire action, and do so while publishing sustainably and responsibly.

Elena Cremona at CINEMARE Int'l Ocean Film Festival Kiel 2018

The Diminishing Landscape addresses the increasingly problematic social and environmental issues present in Global society that places consumption above the wellbeing of our planet. The work acts as a metaphor for the loss and irreplaceable sublime nature of landscape.

The work is a large-scale projection installation that exposes the terrifying beauty of our ever-changing irreplaceable landscape, the destruction of Nature and the ideas of the Sublime. It raises awareness to this altered world and encourages the audience to consider their role within the environment.
