Writers, visual artists, designers, filmmakers, animators, photographers, content creators and event consultants have utilized the digital medium in an online showcase entitled To Differ, Digitally 2 (TDD2): Love and Dissent in the Time of Pandemic, which features a series of protest artworks.

TDD2 is the second iteration of the exhibition, which explores the digital landscape as a platform to communicate constructive protest based on love and empathy. The show spotlights photographs, graphic design and illustrations, two-dimensional and three-dimensional models and rigs, animation and live action films, texts, audio, applications and software.

Inspired by the Filipino sense of kapwa, where the self is equal to others, this edition calls for change and brings to light some of the most prevalent and persisting issues amid the coronavirus pandemic and beyond.

‘Action Series Frontliner Heroes Featuring Voltanna’ by Volty Garcia and Hannah Sison.

The pieces seek to investigate social engagements out of issues and meanings emerging from the continuing lockdowns, such as the heroism of medical frontliners; the difficulty of online learning; burnout and mental health problems; as well as ways of confronting acts of violence, misogyny and red-tagging.

The online display enlists industry practitioners and artist-educators from the Animation, Digital Filmmaking, Multimedia Arts and Photography programs of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) School of Design and Arts New Media Cluster.

‘I, Labyrinth’ by Jag Garcia.

The lineup of creators is comprised of writer Jag Garcia, motion graphics artist and designer Yolec Homecillo, multimedia designer Hannah Sison, 3D artist Volty Garcia, visual communicator Vanessa Puente, visual artist Emily Mones, designer, writer and artist Brian Bringas and graphic designers Dino Brucelas and Rafael Liao. Completing the roster are writer and designer Ericka Garalde, filmmaker, writer and content producer Seymour Sanchez, multidisciplinary artist Teta Tulay, event consultant Mito Tubilleja, writer and content developer Penny Angeles-Tan, animator Benjie Marasigan and photographer Jay Javier.

TDD2 is produced by the Center for Campus Art of the DLS-CSB and curated by CCA director, architect Gerry Torres and artist Karen Ocampo Flores. To view the exhibit, visit the official Facebook page of Benilde CCA at
