        LINDA ZHANG is Syracuse Architecture’s 2018 Boghosian Fellow. As part of the fellowship, ZHANG integrated the technical tools of casting and mold-making, allowing students to develop new forms of critical memory as they explore the translations of conceptual applications of full-scale structures. In this interview, ZHANG articulates her motivations for BETA-REAL, thoughts on ambivalent-shared realities, and the choice of ceramics as a medium.

        BIKO MANDELA GRAY is an associate professor at Syracuse University in the Department of Religion. GRAY examines the connection between religion, embodiment, and subjectivity, with emphasis on how these facets are augmented and inflected through race gender and sexuality. GRAY also examines the Black Lives Matter movement as a clearing or religious space, challenging traditional approaches to subjectivity, and understands subjectivity as a relation, a constantly changing constellation of various modes of relational engagement.
