the warmth of freshly pressed thoughts
on eggshell leaves.
a touch of the keys
of fragments laced to prose.
a flicker of humanity.

“My dream is to build a community of playing, making, and sharing. I do not know what to call this, but for the time being let’s say it’s an experimental playground. Not quite a collective, gallery, or industry, but just a space to “fux wit it.” Come and leave as you please. Make this your own space.” – Cindy Nguyen
Personally, I am proud of Cindy — for having the courage, confidence, and the guts to build HAPTIC. To disregard bullshit ‘classifications’ of art. To create HAPTIC PRESS as the anti-‘ART’ — a lower-case ‘a’ in art — to make art for all, to make art for the people.
To make art that encourages everyone to make art. A non-elitist place; rather, an open democratic playground of creating, sharing, and playing.
Wind lingers on sweeping shore
a coy morning dance.
EXHIBITION 1: TO CLASSIFY
Our inaugural exhibition plays with the fantasy of classification.
Classification as control, as order, as comfort.
Photo-Cubism by Eric Kim
semi-abstract, low-poly, graphic design, not picasso, not cubism, matisse-esque, not photography, what’s the point? why? Eric Kim needs to stop diverting from street photography. Eric Kim is addicted to drugs.
