FICTILIS is the collaborative practice of multimedia artists and curators Andrea Steves and Timothy Furstnau. The word “FICTILIS” is Latin for “capable of being shaped or changed; earthen”. This definition refers both to the form of our practice and to the role we intend it to play within the larger culture. FICTILIS works on a project basis, across many types of media and disciplines, with ongoing interests in materialism and waste flows, links between social and environmental issues, language, the process/politics of collecting, and capitalism as a historical phenomenon.
