So, as a student and someone within the Fisher community (while also being away from it as a commuter) it has not been an easy thing. My gender identity felt a little all over the place, but the ways it was helped was through programs and acceptance of expression and gender brought on by people like Jenna Weintraub from student life.   ANGLES: What does feminism mean to you?   BB: Feminism to me means that equality, true equality, comes through the lifting of others with one’s own privilege so that everyone has the ability to stand on equal grounds.

Issue 5 Featured Artist Interview

ANGLES:  Can you tell us a little more about yourself? GR: I’m pretty much just a regular person trying to live comfortable and see others happy. My biggest passion is creating art.   ANGLES:  We were drawn to your use of collage throughout your body of work. Where do you start when you begin a collage? GR: The process of making a collage is what really draws me into this type of art and construction. I love the idea that I can take something seen as useless or forgotten trash and turn it into art, with a new meaning and a new story. Not only for its recycling purposes but it mirrors what we do in everyday life. We go to school, we go to work, we ask questions and test theories our whole lives. Within these actions, we build off other people’s ideas and create patterns of meaning in our own lives. Making collages is the same thing. You take material from one place, add it somewhere else with other things and new ideas are born. A lot of the collages I make are also very personal to me. I collect all the material used in my collages. Every picture or material used were found in thrift stores, garages sales, estate sales, swap-meets, random offices, libraries and a lot of the times just on the floor. It’s fun...
