Our Latest Interview with Artist, SEEMORIAH


SEEMORIAH is a multidisciplinary artists with Puerto Rican roots, living in New York City. SoapSkeptics visited her studio and we discussed the differences in the cultures she experiences in her day to day, between the art world of NYC, the Puerto Rican culture, and the New York City culture. She explains the ways in which society and technology have influenced her feminist art practice and she lets us into her world she creates where women are fearless and powerful.

Taking A Break From Work Is Good For You

We have been busy busy the past few weeks, getting our Kickstarter Campaign launched, continuing to interview local artists, edit the films, and creating creations to sell at our local art festival, June Bug!
We decided to take this glorious day and spend it at Round Valley Park in New Jersey. 

GO THERE BECAUSE IT IS AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL! The water is crystal clear, the trees are radiating good vibrations, and the air is just too good to not breathe. It's always good to get out of the office/studio/home and just explore somewhere new with good friends, and some sandwiches. 


Now, we must continue on our work! 
We have a couple "Artist Perspective" 
videos coming to ya'll this week:

One is with SEEMORIAH, a very passionate multidisciplinary feminist artist from New York City. She gives us interesting opinions about living in New York City as an artist and as a Puerto Rican woman. 

Second, we have Boat Shoes, a one man experimental band who uses cacophony at it's finest. He talks with us about being from a small town in New Jersey with little cultural influences, how hip hop shaped his interest in music, and how/why his interest has evolved over time.

Local Metuchen, New Jersey Artists (Andrea Garcia and Rosie McNeill) are embarking on a trip across North America to discover the relationship between our quickly-evolving culture and art practice in 2014.

SoapSkeptics is traveling to and supporting other local artists across America in order to create a documentary on the subject, collaborate with the artists, and create a new form of community which can only be obtained through  human interaction.

We are ALSO publishing a book which will consist of handmade weavings we create out of raw materials in every city/town we stop in along with our drawings and writings from our personal sketch books. The book will be the way in which WE visually represent our journey and experiences across America.

For more details, stay tuned for our kickstarter which will be launched on May 14- help us reach our goal of $5,000 to make this project happen !!!!

Help us get the word out about our mission and if you are interest, please feel free to contact us, follow us, like us.
