As a group of artists, we each explore the broad ideas of contact and impression. Process and interaction, specifically through material context and use, are important factors in our work. Surplus Space as a home-turned-gallery furthers our exploration of contact and impression by allowing the viewers to experience our work in a different way compared to the typical white-walled, blank slate gallery as our pieces become site-specific installations.
