As many may already know, it is not the lack of content, but the lack of quality that is in demand. To combat this issue, the YAJA was set up to give students an opportunity to showcase their talents and express themselves in a unique form.

Elisabeth Weissensteiner – Mirror Brain

BY Anna Pappas Gallery | 11-Nov-2012

By looking into the object held in their hands it raises the question of, can we understand how we think?”
