Recipe for a Split End:
withering fantasy / mending with sap / dust resting on pleather seat / tickling landscape / sitting in a puddle / posing questions / flipping a lemon wedge / dry mouth / prickly feet / several wild flowers / collecting rocks / sex appeal / pining for friends

Flirting with danger, a finger slips scratching the frail edge of the cuticle sheath. In between scratch and brittle fiber exists a misty climate supporting the propagation of fertile split ends. Fourteen makers play, sniff, and negotiate the intersection between breakage — pollinating and conditioning a vinegary serum composed of tense material hybrids. In this elastic biome exists a beating landscape generating the questions:

does a split end resolve an absence?
is a split end an uncategorized measurement of time yet to be
archeologically realized?
do split ends avoid the limelight?
do split ends incorporate fiction into a recipe for reality?
do split ends leisurely sway?
do they have friends?
Should you be So close to my split end?
did we stop at split ends?

Morgan Bussy, Eve Clark, Kristine Dalbey, Caroline Galicki, Andrew I. Gallardo, Angel Heard, Renée Hrovat, Clare Hu, Sumin Kim, Osée Obaonrin, Raffa Reuther, Cristina Umaña, Naomi Powers, and Luis Mejico
