Lauren Elder (b.1990) lives and works in Los Angeles. She received her BFA with and emphasis on New Media and Sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The main focus of her research is on the transformation of symbolic behavior through mass production and the resulting loss of information. Her aim is to recreate the commercial promos of the “all-in-one” through the use of failure of the ideal consumer object. She is currently a member of Miami Dutch.

Rachael Milton (b.1990) lives and works in Chicago, IL. She is a recent graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her research revolves around the history of the modern military-industrial complex, specifically the interplay between the facts and myths surrounding it, and it’s influences on the aesthetics now associated with big-budget Hollywood sci-fi movies. Her work attempts to determine where the line between on-screen utilitarian ‘future’ objects, on-set placeholders, and fictional military and civilian technology fails.

Sua Yoo (b.1990) is from Chicago. Her body of work emerges from the dissolution of personal physics, real-time marketplace physics, material overrides, and encoded material instinct. Her work surveys the technological landscape with an inexact and emotionally skewed eye to create images, application and objects of inescapable desire.
