Shona is an Australian filmmaker, arts worker, graphic designer, and Flux Factory's Interim Director. Her films involve the physical, alchemic, and sculptural manipulation of original and found images to create abstract animations.
Chess Venis arrived on the Flux Factory scene in September 2009. She is a Stage Manager / Technical Director for various theatre companies and performance groups in New York, and Co Producer of “The Screen’s Project”, a young theatre company devising site-specific performance art. Chess can often be found coordinating Flux factory events and construction projects, -sometimes simultaneously. Artistically, her interest lies in culinary, music, and writing. A modest collection of Chess’ poetry can be found at www.chessvenis.blogspot.com.
