𝗬𝗮𝘀𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗲 𝗡𝗮𝘀𝘀𝗲𝗿 𝗗𝗶𝗮𝘇 is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice weaves between culture, class, gender, religion, and family. She uses mixed
media collage, immersive installation, fiber etching, and video to juxtapose disparate cultural references and to explore the connections between personal experience and larger social and political structures. Diaz is especially interested in complicated narratives
of third-culture identity and their precarious invisibility/hyper-visibility.

𝗦𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗵 𝗘𝗹𝗮𝘄𝗮𝗱 is a multidisciplinary designer born and raised in the UK, with family roots in Sudan. She studied Graphic Design at Virginia Commonwealth University of the Arts in Doha, Qatar and is currently doing a design residency at Fabrica in Treviso, Italy. Sarah’s hybrid family history, as well as her experience with travel, has caused the research point for a lot of her work to be inspired by her own curiosities about life, culture and her surroundings. She constantly tries to find different mediums and material to relate those curiosities visually. Her work ranges from 3D graphic objects, to publication design, textile design, coded interactive installations, digital animations and more.
