Rug & Vase recognizes and makes full use of

the liberatory space of seeing people beyond

the hegemony of identities the marketplace

currently trafficks in via artificial hierarchies

within a culture war context,

and works instead from

a default life philosophy of seeing all people as worthy of dignity

regardless of class and privilege dynamics to make work that

celebrates the freshest voices and greatest ideas in the spaces

deemed unmarketable by the powers that be.

or in other words

  • we can sing our songs as loudly as we want

and once again

  1. the azimuth traced
  2. from our homelands
  3. to us 
  4. maps the altitude of 
  5. our bodies of work- 
  6. at-play- 
  7. and-rest.
