Nathanael Thayer Mossis a multidisciplinary artist/musician. His current work explores transcendental ideas of perfection through esoteric design and repetitive geometry. He is heavily influenced by futurist design, space architecture, video game landscapes, and electronic music. His work balances design and chaos working in pre-determined parameters as a way to produce meta-iconic imagery.
Stephanie Simek has been living in Portland for 6 years, where she has been creating experiments with sound, performance, & sculpture with an arching focus on positivity, empowerment, and coexistence. In addition to these works, she designs a line of wearable accessories using unusual materials and forms.

Safe & Sound? is a documentary video installation by a collective of artists and community organizers in Portland, Oregon who are concerned about the Portland Police Bureau's routine use of excessive force and other methods of intimidation. Safe & Sound? tells stories about police brutality and resistance to police brutality in the Portland community. The movie foregrounds interviews with Portland community members including family members of individuals killed by police, survivors of police brutality, and community members who speak out against police violence.
On May 18 the Safe & Sound? website will launch and will contain all of the media from the installation as well as additional interviews and resources. This project is funded by a Community Participation Project Grant from the Regional Arts & Culture Council.

Ron Graff has been Associate Professor of painting at the University of Oregon since 1980. He has received several awards including the Oregon Arts Commission, and a Ford Foundation Grant, as well as lecturing on his work at numerous distinguished Universities and Art Institutes.
Donald Morgan takes advantage of the tiny gap between the two and three-dimensional. His sculptures and paintings function together as a hard-edged geometric landscape, giving rise to temporal and spatial shifts.

Mike Daisey, hailed by The New York Times as "the master storyteller," returns to Portland with the world premiere of his new work. In a single night, Daisey takes us on a fantastic journey through the sprawling landscape of journalism right now touching on how it functions, how it fails us, and how it chooses to tell our stories. Using his own scandal as a jumping-off point, he illuminates how the myth of objective journalism weakens and manipulates us and has made our public discourse easy to manipulate. It is a love letter to journalism highlighting the struggle to tell a story that actually shows us the truth. click to buy tickets
