An artist, experimenter, and dreamer living in Portland, Oregon, Katherine makes art within---rather than about---movements. She has organized large-scale protests with the Portland Action Lab, lived on a floating island to conduct experiments with lake-cleaning oyster mushrooms, and bicycled from Oregon to Washington, D.C. to present legislators with small-scale solutions to climate change (Her film documenting the experience will be released this winter). She is currently enrolled in Portland State University’s Art + Social Practice MFA program.
Matthew Ocasio believes that storytelling can save the world, for it is stories that frame our beliefs, conceptions, and expectations from the world around us. To that end, he hides out in his apartment with his two cats and a keyboard so as to better orient peoples' perspectives and, hopefully, save a little bit of the world.
