MUSIC REVIEW: The Dune Flowers – Tired of Being Nothing

The newest single from The Dune Flowers, a D.C. based project created by songwriter Tyler Drager, may at first seem like a departure from their characteristic sound.

Despite the track’s novel sound, Drager’s succinct and heartfelt songwriting style remains the same.

LILY HOBART: ON THE BEAUTY OF EARTH

Over the past two weeks, I’ve found myself getting closer to VCUarts landscape photographer, Lily Hobart (@lilyhobartt) – a junior in the Photography + Film department. We first bonded in September of last year after learning that we had both transferred from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. After establishing a desire to be more connected to the wilderness, we both decided to come here. As time progresses and I work beside her in the darkroom, I’ve become increasingly enchanted by her portraits of Earth.
