Short Two mossy stone figures with human legs and fish torsos sit leaning against each other on a mossy stone by the seashore. On the horizon the shape of a double-masted sailing vessel made out of water rises out of the sea and cuts into the blue, cloud-filled sky.
Short In this black-and-white photograph two well-dressed boys, one black and one white, stand facing each other. They look calm and composed though their postures and gestures suggest that one child has just slapped the other. The image is printed with a white border so that it resembles a Polaroid photograph.
Short In this painting, a woman painter holds a paint palette in front of a paint-by-numbers portrait. Her skin is as black as the as the solid black background; she stares confidently into our eyes.
Long This painted portrait depicts a young woman with jet-black skin holding a long, thin paintbrush up to a colorful, messy painter’s palette. She is shown in a three-quarter pose, gazing directly at the viewer. Her face, which is central to the square composition, stands out against a large, white, canvas, almost blending into the pitch-black background to her right. Closer inspection reveals, however, that her skin is subtly rendered, with various shades of contours and highlights. She wears two large hoop earrings, three small hoop earrings, and an oversized, boxy, high-collared jacket made of stiff fabric. Her voluminous hair—black with an ochre sheen—rises in thick coils on top of her head. The canvas to her left shows a partly finished paint-by-number self-portrait; in it, her likeness is broken up into smaller segments with pale-blue outlines and numbers. She has outlined many of the segments and filled them in with colors from her palette: orange, blue, yellow, pink, brown, and a few shades of green. The paint-by-number canvas does not accurately represent the color and pattern of the jacket she wears, which features mustard yellow sleeves and collar and deep blue and maroon and light yellow stripes.
Short A painted portrait depicts a young dark-skinned person wearing a brown outfit resembling a girl scout's uniform, multiple gold hoop earrings, and backwards hat. They are shown from the shoulders up with a dramatic white starburst shape behind their head.

Short A thick stack of images is held together by three binder rings on their left edges. The only visible image atop the stack is a vintage photo of a young, blonde, light-skinned woman cutting a cake.
Short Black-and-white drawings on separate pieces of square and rectangular paper are pinned to the wall to create the illusion of a wire mobile suspending a tree stump and an intricate wooden sculpture.
Short Four 2-by-4 pieces of wood lie parallel on the ground, equidistant from one another. A square wool fabric covers the wood, with four dyed brown strips of wool overlying the pieces of wood exactly.
Long Hundreds of short horizontal red, blue, black, and yellow dashes on a light-peach background create the impression of one large and two smaller light-peach circles at the center of the image. Dozens of even smaller circles in red, blue, yellow, black, and green are scattered throughout, connected in pairs by long colored lines that intersect. The four nodal forms seem to hover atop the larger circles.
Short A woman with bright, color contacts, short spiky purple hair, and a futuristic, plastic outfit, stands in the middle of a white room surrounded by floating colored balls. She poses like a pop singer holding a microphone that looks like a small spaceship and wearing large headphones.
Short A woman with short spiky purple hair and tiny pupils wearing a futuristic, plastic outfit and headphones, poses with a microphone in the middle of a white room surrounded by floating colored balls.
Long Each ball is a different color and they appear to be made of rubber or plastic. Everything in the picture appears to be made of plastic: from the acrylic, plaid skirt the woman is wearing, to the spaceship shaped microphone she holds, to the oversized headphones she wears over her purple hair. The full figure of the woman is visible and in addition to the plaid miniskirt, she is wearing white tights with geometric markings at her knee, white boots, a black sequin top and plastic circlets over her, kneck, shoulders and arms. She poses like a pop singer with her eyes looking directly at the viewer, her gaze is made more unnerving by the intensely bright yellow white contact lenses she is wearing which cover her irises entirely and reduce her pupils to small black dots.
