Through slightly disarming, curious, and unconventional surprises, we use creativity and quirky design thinking to provide an entry point into positive change making. Our interactive projects, workshops, events and machines challenge complex systems of thought. The results provide participants an invitation and the means to live better, collectively, in our communities. 


Libby Modern

Libby has been working as an artist and a designer for many years. After graduating from Princeton University, Libby studied design and art direction at the Creative Circus in Atlanta, GA. She cut her teeth in the design world of San Francisco, then co-founded Half-Full, an award-winning design studio dedicated to providing creative communications strategies for non-profits.  After 12 years of working with clients such as Greenpeace, The Jane Goodall Institute, and Defenders of Wildlife, all while painting on the side, Libby mixed them up, combined them and founded Modern Art. And that’s where she is now.

Joanna Davis Seedorf

Jo is a contemporary artist who works mainly with space specific projects. As an alternative to the gallery model, through her work she seeks to answer the question: how do we make art more accessible to all people so that it can provide respite from societal impositions, provoke different perspectives and give voice to the unheard? She uses traditional drawing and painting media as well as construction materials and digital tools.

Davis has a rich and varied art background focused on painting and illustration. Her paintings are based on replication and microcosmos, echoing patterns and designs found in nature. She earned BFA from Rhode Island School of Design, studying in Providence and Rome. Her work has been exhibited in various galleries around the U.S. and the cover of Timothy McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern.  She was a finalist in the Visual Design Competition of the Frank Gherry designed Museo de Biodiversidad in Panama City, Panama.
