Speakers (in presenting order)
Jamie Jackson - Many Facades of a Lifetime
Jamie's portfolio of work spans from professional acting, through fashion design and teaching to interior design and the question she is always asked....."how do you have so many different careers?" I always maintain they are at core the same, creating, only the facade changes.

Doug Ing - Doug Ing likes to make things
Doug Ing likes to make things, whether it is a Vine video, a short documentary, a cartoon or an artwork, he enjoys the act of creating. Often times, a random thought occurs during his daytime activities and that will find itself in an artwork. He finds inspiration from random phrases, Facebook, conversations and dreaming.
Katherine Love - Fashionable Façades
Katherine Love’s presentation for Façade will focus on her two most recent bodies of work Romantic Landscapes and Mutations, which feature elaborate hairstyles from the late 18th and early 19th centuries, often juxtaposed against the backdrop of a romanticized landscape.

An exploration of Architectural façade’s; a building’s skin. The purpose of an architectural skin is two-fold; functional and psychological. These projects analyze modalities of passive design, architectural attitude, and climate adaptation as parts of the many capacities of the architectural skin.

A catalytic component of the Kamehameha Schools' master plan in Kaka'ako, SALT is a retail center that embraces community and culture through the adaptive re-use of existing warehouse spaces and the design of spaces between the buildings.

Rooted in her own memories of the Lebanese Civil War, Reem investigates the haunting images of her youth in Beirut while the city was predominated by war and political uncertainty. Reem's work offers visions of how it felt growing up in a war zone, a subject many might deem dejected.
Kirsten Simonsen - Pleasure Parks
The circus, the carnival, the festival, and the roadside attraction are all always façades.My current body of work is in part inspired by various alternative, temporary communities I was a part of in Europe and North America in the last years leading up to the dawn of the 21st century.
Sam Guerrero - That time I tried to make work that unpacked the Facade of Masculinity
Sam Guerrero sorts through the multiple layers of insecurities that exist within the multi-dimensional structure of his identity for inspiration. (In other words, he thinks way too much about why he is awkward instead of how he could try and be less awkward. ) His work utilizes the familiar language found within America’s visual culture – injected with enough peculiarity to question the validity of its content. (Meaning he watched way too much tv as a kid and never stopped.)
