JOAN POPE is self-taught as an artist and musician and holds a degree in Philosophy and Religious Studies, with a particular interest in comparative myth and religion. As well, she is the creator of Sex-Death-Rebirth, a religious movement for the new world. She is the Goddess Who Serves, and is immersed in utter devotion to her ministry, an audio-visual feast of Sexuality and the Sacred bound inextricably to light, colour and sound. She is inspired by a group of writers who were living in interwar Paris who had their own sex-death cult; this project acts as a final reincarnation, a carnal toast to the Ancient Gods. She feels lost in the modern world and nostalgic for an ancient time well before her own. She is seeking The Sacred.

STEVEN CLINE was born in the city of Atlanta, but spent the majority of his formative years growing up in the wild nowhere-lands of rural Georgia. It was there that he befriended a possum, a tick, and a slug. He jumped from one small town to another, but eventually he returned to the city of his birth. Steven discovered surrealism through the writing of Franklin Rosemont and the Chicago Surrealist Group. This led to experiments with automatic writing and collage, and to a general disordering of his senses. He now also participates in a local surrealist group in Atlanta, where they spend their time playing games, reciting dreams, and generally living the good surr-life. Steven lives in an unending pursuit of the marvelous, and he hopes to abolish capitalism one day.
