Kayrooz’s works in photography, illustration and writing are projects which relate, contrast and mimic, previous or existing video work concepts. Her experimental writing works are composed through an abstraction of image and text, specifically seen through her works material choices and processes, which challenge and parody common zine conventions.

Klein often creates dark and atmospheric work that studies contemporary masculinity, creates fictional worlds and dystopic environments. Klein’s work follows his own growth as an artist in the modern world. This can be seen through the construction of portraiture and the observation of spaces.

(G30) Maddyson Hatton
Maddyson Hatton works primarily in print, ceramics and artists books . Her recent research focuses on censorship in Google satellite imagery and the oculars role within mapping as an instrument of power regarding sight. A fundamental process to all of Maddyson's work is blind drawing: the eye traces the image, whilst the hand traces blindly what the eye is seeing. Looking and drawing become separated, the eye does not check to verify the accuracy of the drawing. It reaches a point where the images information becomes abstruse, unreadable and blind.
