Short An abstract composition is dominated by a pale gray, water-splotched form that drips outward.
Long The composition centers on gray and light blue form which takes up much of the surface of a rectangular, portrait-oriented canvas. The wave-like blue paint is the topmost layer of a succession of mostly earth tone markings. Many layers of the paint run in drip formations at the edges. The direction of the drips is not consistent throughout the composition: rather the canvas appears to have been moved while the painting was in process, giving the painting a dynamic impression.
Short A grayish tunic made entirely out of small metal sewing needles hangs from a white wall.
Long Hanging from two barely visible hooks on a white wall is what appears to be a very thin translucent grey fabric in the form of a cardigan. The garment has sleeves, with its open side facing the wall. Upon closer inspection, one realizes that the fabric is made of hundreds, if not thousands, of sewing needles held to one another with a barely visible white silk thread. The artwork gives the initial impression of being a simple fabric but as the viewer realizes that the piece is meticulously made of so many sharp and hard pieces, the illusion of soft folds become more impressive. The fabric looks weightless, like a ghost fabric.
Short Four murky sepia-toned images of shoes embedded on a white wall by what appears to be surgical stitching.

Short A teenage girl wearing a tank top and blue jeans stands beside a house and next to a tree with ripe oranges and a chain-link fence. She spits water at the camera and the mist makes a rainbow.
Short Three yellow sculptures of abstract human figures stand as if communicating with each other outdoors in an urban setting.
Long Three yellow and white forms are installed on an outdoor terrace. The forms resemble human bodies, yet they have no faces. The heads of the forms are created from coiled, hard textured material and the bodies are similarly constructed of coiled material, arranged into torsos, arms and legs. The scale of the figures is about double the size of an average person and the are arranged about a half of a figure length apart from each other. The figure on the left appears to have its head tilted to the sky, while the center figure faces to the right, where the third figure bends lightly towards the ground, hand upraised. The bright color of the figures contrasts with urban scene in the background: behind the figures a black fence, green leafy trees and tall gray buildings are visible. The sky is bright blue and the bright light of mid-day casts sharp shadows below the figures.
Short In a long, vertical frame, a white figure's bust appears to be sitting in a bar window. He rests hi head in his hand, and his elbow on a curtain rod. There is a bright capital letter "R" above him.
Long This sculpture is framed in a vertical rectangular box like a scene in a window. A solitary figure made of white paper mache looks down and leans sadly on his hand. His elbow rests on a curtain rod, as if he is in a bar or restaurant. Above him is a bright blue capital letter "R."

Short Two types of alien stand in four groups of two. The two largest of each alien type stand together. The smaller ones mingle with their foreign alien counterparts. One alien type is yellow, red, and lanky, has eyes on stalks, and stands on a dark blue circle; the other is green, red, and short, has black glossy oval eyes, and stands on a red circle.

Long A pair of black-and-white photographs with matching black frames and solid black backgrounds capture a portrait of a woman with short, kinky, black hair from behind and a wooden mask from behind with a carved chin-length wig that curls at the ends and comes to a point at the top. Centered below is a black label with white text that reads "the neighbors were suspicious of her hairstyle."
Short A shadowy fist hovers above a spoon against a black background.
Short In this photograph, a woman on the phone works at a cluttered desk. Trees, high-rises, and a man doing a backflip are visible through the room's floor-to-ceiling window.
Short Photograph of a grey textile that resembles a wet or soiled cut off sweatshirt sleeve.
Long This is a photograph of a grey fabric object that appears made from cotton. The upper part of the fabric is cut in an uneven fashion, cut lower on the right than on the left. The bottom half of the object is evenly hemmed in the way of a sweatshirt sleeve. The fabric appears to be wet or stained, mostly of the left half of the textile.
Short This is an aerial view of a spiral landmass in a shimmering body of water.
Long This is an aerial view of a spiral landmass. It is in a large, pink body of water that is shimmering in the sun. The water appears to be shallow, and you can see just below the surface.
