Thoughts About Art and Community

Through their work, they attempt to engage and interact with the public by creating, facilitating or collaborating in shared experiences. 


Alisson is a mythopoeic transmedia artist + art worker living and operating in Toronto, Canada. Their work explores the internal drives and external influences that shape identity as a Colombian first-generation immigrant in North America. Escobar’s work exists in the digital wilderness, a place where finishes, effects, surfaces, and algorithms demonstrate the complexity of the medium. Their work is concerned with the power of images, technology and the degree to which we are shaped by consumer capitalist culture and mass media.
