Art creates new realities or is the result of a clash with reality. Dual is the result of one of these collisions.
From afar, we perceived a heightened escalation of violence that continues eroding the fabric of the nation. Tradition brutally assaulted by aggression. Dual is the result of these realities that take place, nonsensically, simultaneously.
Dual is joy and reflection. A representation of an overwhelming reality in which laughter is no longer enough to endure its burden.
Dual is an ephemeral celebration and a permanent protest.
We developed colorways that captured our somber and our hopeful thoughts.

@Squash73 opened their doors to us on Day of the Dead to temporarily house the talent of more than 60 artists that gave life to Dual. The After Five community continues growing and creating one of a kind pieces that we share in memorable gatherings.
We put together a paper cut day of the dead altar with an oversized version of Dual, which captured our contrasting feelings.
