Cauldron & Net

This post is also available in: Español (Spanish)


This publication seeks to call the readers’/viewers’ attention to the fecundity of the WWW as a meeting ground. In my estimation the works herein tell this tale with a supreme eloquence and illustrate the richness of a gathering place which may bring diverse types together and help to illustrate their essential commonality: creation.

–Claire Allan Dinsmore, “INCEPTION
