Lily explores feelings, experience, and thoughts through video, performance, and other media. She is fascinated by multiple realities, the construction of one's identity, the intersection of space x time and what cannot be known. Her videos and performances interrogate and unpack social norms to poke at the messy humanity within. People, community, and accessibility are all pillars of her practice as an artist, educator, and founder of Crit.
Marjani, a St. Louis native, is a multimedia artist and designer now residing in Brooklyn. Marjani has turned her twisted love of geometry and color into a wonderful collection of headware, jewelry, fabric collages, paintings and drawings using a variety of media. Her free flowing, automatic process, which welcomes the beauty in imperfections and guttural decision-making, informs much of her work, as well as her exploration of repurposed and unusual materials to create common objects.
If experiences, feelings, and ideas are puddles of water, Michelle likes to think of poetry as the cup that contains the water. A good poem is a fine crystal cup. But a great poem is a singing cup played with a wet finger tracing the rim. Michelle's puddles emerge from a desire to play with the materiality of meaning and out of a drive to voice the contradictory chorus of identity. She founded Crit to explore the possibilities for thematic resonances within collective pursuits.

Elie is developing a practice wherein she can use her background in graphic design to support people supporting each other.
