This album and its associated visual and video content were created for the Covert Gallery at the University of Portland.

Gallery Didactic:
Salvador Orara’s art combines creative technology, media design, and sound, using emerging technologies to transform subjects into abstraction and surrealism. He begins by engaging with a subject, a person, or an idea, creating a system or process and allowing it to unfold, finding comfort and relief in rarely knowing how an artwork or creation might speak. These pieces are inspired by the mental health of industry professionals turned educators and the imposter syndrome and self-doubt he has experienced in this role. Processing these emotions fuels his creative voice, and his reliance on emerging technologies allows his art practice to transform, always trusting the fluid approach to lead to the full expression of his persistence and triumph.

About the work:
The show's center point is six audio tracks, which influenced the creation of six accompanying videos and posters.
