Things have been surreal and too real; novel and getting old fast; overwhelming, challenging, and hard with bright spots. We’ve been locked down and trying to build each other up. This (time) capsule is an offering. A mosaic of meditation. A sourdough starter of creativity to help feed your own. Take a step back, take a breath, take a look, and take your time.
Here is a window, your window if you’d like. A passage into a dimension where time does not exist. A place where space is the pace of a fleeting reality. Invite whomever you’d like for there is no limit to the experience of escaping time. Our existence flows in unison with every moment, as an opportunity to create from nothing. As dawn joins darkness the possibility of discovery powerfully emerges into the big game that we call life. At all times, living happens right now.

Kylah Benes-Trapp is a creative director and filmmaker based in Los Angeles, California. Her art is rooted in fantasy-realism and mixed media. From filmmaking to video collage, to her photography, animation, and graphic design, she invites and explores escapism, playful truth-seeking, and invoking the next generation of voices. Her first short film ‘HEATHER’ was selected to participate in the 2018 Tribeca Film Institute ‘Through Her Lens’ women's filmmaker program. She is one-half of the filmmaker duo Silkblade, and has been thinking lately about the seed of Octavia Butler's quote: "all that you touch you change, and all that you change changes you."
