DJ Mahealani is a mixed media, multidisciplinary artist. "i spin vinyl spells. it's lunar bump from get down galaxies. it's new wave old school. it's dusty old jams from the space age, & modern beats from back in the day. i flip the familiar into ancient codes + future myths, and it makes heart beats + booties collide."
Visuals - Deborah Valcin
Deborah is a Haitian filmmaker based in Austin, Texas with five years of videography under her belt. She has a strong passion for screenwriting and has written multiple scripts, two of which became short films. Her passion for her home country of Haiti drives her to constantly come up with new story ideas and a strong desire to bring to light unique stories centered around the Haitian narrative and the Haitian Diaspora. Deborah's lifelong passion is to explore the fluidity of human condition, the complexity of the Haitian narrative, and the curious nature of emotion and how it manifests itself in art, in others, and in nature. (Deborah will also be one of our featured Meet Her Hands exhibitors this summer through our collaboration with the Elisabet Ney Museum).
