Cheryl Sourkes's photographic triptych Green Blue Yellow was made with webcam images. Michelle Johnson wants you to know that universal body substance precautions are advised.
Heidi Schaefer's tank and weapons drawings are mean mammas.
Myfanwy Ashmore's asks symbiosis: is it parasitism or mutualism?
