August 22 - 25, 2013
Cameron Soren & Melissa Sachs
Cameron Soren & Melissa Sachs present Weepy Donuts, the result of their art "jam sessions". On a Wacom tablet, lying down in bed, high on Kratom (Southeast Asian plant, when consumed in tea, similar effect to morphine), they produce "paintings". The artists seek to "pick up the viewer" by escaping into a drug-induced pod and looking inward.
