—Promo shot of Pregnant Virgins.
Alexandria Jessica Sloate and Francisco Marin, age 19. We made harsh noise. We were going to change the world… we failed. We kind of sucked, but it was fun.

The piece is called “Liminality.” It’s black and white, xeroxed on Ultra White paper. $10ppd. Only one copy was made.
