Workshop Description: When broken apart, “heirloom” implies something handed down that also ties together.

When exploded out of its traditional patrilineal associations, like a chosen family, we can more fully recognize for ourselves the other lineages we belong to–aesthetically, historically, spiritually etc. In this 6-week generative session, we will work to define & engage with our own artistic ancestors across time & space.

We will explore their work & circumstances as keys to understanding our own, while also sharing our findings with each other.

As an interdisciplinary thingmaker myself, I encourage us to look not only to the written word, but to any medium that speaks to us via whatever technology it can.


Cea/Constantine Jones  is a Greek-American thingmaker raised in Tennessee & currently housed in Brooklyn. They are a member of the Visual AIDS Aritst+ Registry & teach creative writing at CCNY. Their work has been performed or exhibited at various venues in NYC and beyond & their debut hybrid haunted house novel, IN STILL ROOMS, was released from The Operating System on March 4th, 2020. linktr.ee/storiesandnoise
