Dopamine by visualdisco @visualdisco

Toronto-based graphic designer creating art through music.

This piece was inspired by a song of the same name by Mild Minds. Since dopamine plays a large role in how we feel and experience pleasure, to arrive at an idealized place of perfection or utopia, we need to hack into our dopamine levels, boosting the chemical to increase our motivation and self-fulfillment.

Gem Allison @unattainableblonde

My name is Gem and I'm a Sheffield based multimedia artist who creates  work on the themes of socialism, feminism, bisexuality and kink. I recently finished studying History BA and focused on lgbt history and modern British political history which features heavily in my art. For the theme utopia, I have included work about socialism and wealth redistribution which would make the world a better place. My work also centres nudity to subvert the male gaze in favour of a queer gaze.

Unwelcome by Dahlia Waller @dahliarue & @dahliadoodlee 

Dahlia Waller, a multidisciplinary artist based in Canada. 

This series is titled "unwelcome" because the viewer is meant to feel unwelcome when viewing this piece. It is about how privacy is something to be desired right now. COVID-19 has forced many to be stuck in their homes with big families, or in situations that don't afford them much privacy, and in some cases all alone. This piece reflects how I felt over quarantine: vulnerable and on the spot.

Between Two Worlds & Perpetual Return by Federica Colletti @nonsuperareledosiconsigliate WEBSITE 

About Federica: The Rome-based artist Federica Colletti, majoring in communication and marketing psychology, describes her works as surreal collages created by free associations. Her paradoxical pieces have a dreamlike flavour, born of a multitude of thoughts left free to circulate by pouring into a unique representation. She said “of some of them thoughts, probably, I am not aware either, but it is of relative importance, I like the observer to be able to decide what they mean for him. There is a different meaning for each pair of eyes that observe. However, sometimes I do the reverse process: I start from a concept and realize it in the best possible way”.

In her works there are recurring themes: time, space, illusion, resilience, hope, freedom, research, growth, dreams, subjectivity, nature, change, harmony. Half of the creations are indoors (rooms are often a metaphor for "psychic places") and half outdoors (different meanings). The artist loves the collage technique as it unfolds from pre-existing parts, destructures and then restructures in a different order.

As in life, you do the best you can with what you have.
