Michael Hall presents a series of paintings studying the various abandoned coastal defense structures scattered throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. These defense structures were used as outlook posts for possible attacks that never came.

Ela Zubrowska, a freelance graphic designer and photographer, brings us a powerful series of work inspired by the relationship between water and humans.
