member of:Observers of the Interdependence of Domestic Objects and Their Influence on Everyday Life

This group has been active for a long time and has already made some remarkable assertions which render life simpler from the practical point of view. For example, I move a pot of green color five centimeters to the right, I push in the thumbtack beside the comb and if Mr. A (another adherent like me) at this moment puts his volume about bee-keeping beside a pattern for cutting out vests, I am sure to meet on the sidewalk of the avenida Madero a woman who intrigues me and whose origin and address I never could have known...

By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

a brief playlist of her works:

she says:
"When making art, I attempt to gather threads of the mythic, the terrible, the fantastic: imagined fragments of eternal chaos, order, beings, and creatures that sparkle and fester beneath the thin film of reality that hems in our everyday lives, and weave visual tapestries with these threads. I strongly believe in the importance of what Bruno Schulz called modern mythologizing, making sense of reality by creating myths to suit humankind through every age and culture. The artist has a unique ability to interpret and represent reality (and all that creeps beneath its surface) in an endless variety of shades and stripes and languages, dressed in cloaks of whimsy, delight, and horror. I'm plotting away in my own little corner of the world trying to do just that. The past few years have been spent in an effort to develop my own visual vocabulary through which to weave such tapestries."

and a video by anna, also known as distantmirrors on youtube, of the art work of claude verlinde and the mysterious music of thomas newman:
