 Stacie Rose, Atlanta GA // Round 01

Stacie Rose, Atlanta GA // Round 01

Stacie Rose
"It brought me out of my comfort zone (a studio with big walls and lots of supplies) and forced me to come up with new materials that could be used to create in a small space. It got me thinking about personal space and how we tend to try to shrink or expand in cramped situations."

"The best part of this experience was how the limitations of materials and space allowed me to think outside the box and be innovative in what I created in the air. I made something I would have never thought of otherwise!"

"I didn't expect such a level of disinterest from passengers--I thought they'd be slightly intrigued. How narcissistic is that?"

 Lily Kuonen, Jacksonville FL // Round 01

Lily Kuonen
"I did not expect to feel so connected to what the other artists were producing, and their journey. Despite the fact that we were flying all over the US in different directions, we were updating each other via group text and social media. It felt very supportive and engaged!"

"I really enjoyed interacting with so many people and making art together with them. Everyone got to keep a print of their work and I got to keep the memory of our meeting."

Hannah Batsel
"I didn’t expect to feel as proud as I did. I felt strangely empowered, in an “if I can do it here, I can do it anywhere” kind of way."

 Michelle Miller, Boulder CO // Round 01

Michelle Miller, Boulder CO // Round 01

Michelle Miller
"[The residency] showed me how productive I can be in my in between moments, I found myself moving back and forth between paintings and working on multiple pieces at once, and I have definitely taken that back into my own practice post-residency. This has significantly helped my productivity, and the way my pieces interact with each other by working on them simultaneously."

 Amy Smoot, Tuscaloosa AL // Round 02

Amy Smoot
"My favorite thing was being able to look out at a beautiful view while making work. With this only being my second flight ever, it's not something that I experience often."

"My favorite thing about the residency was realizing how much work I could get done in such a short period of time."
