The surrendering of images to thrift stores, online forums, and Craigslist ads is to surrender themselves to creative liberties. Collective.onl is a hub for creatives, storytellers, and familial historians to rely on. Collective's Manifesto:
Collective.onl highlights the accompanying zine of my Capstone exhibition in March of 2023 of the same title, Collective.
