They head back to their giant workroom and get to work. Nao tries to take some of Ryan's supplies. She's making a photo collage mounted to one of the televisions, so she's taking a bunch of skyline photos. John's using an 8-track player, which has something to do with a guy he had a crush on when he was a kid. Judith's making hers about age, since they're taking old things and giving them new life. Trong observes that Jaclyn's building what looks like an aquarium. She says she doesn't know what she's doing. Trong doesn't either, but thinks maybe she's going to put a TV inside and then water. Nicole laughs that Jaclyn can't put glue on a surface. Then Jaclyn asks Ryan for help, and he interviews that he helped because "I have a ton of caulk left." But you know what it sounded like, so... dirty. He helps her, but keeps saying, "Try not to touch the caulk, because you're going to, like, dilute the caulk." John tells Ryan he really knows how to work the caulk. They're all giggly about it, like me. Nicole tells Ryan she's making hers a comment on landfills and consumerism or something, so he gets intimidated and smashes a shelf or whatever that's part of his "art." He doesn't know what he's doing, but he's using a smashed shelf, I guess.
Abdi's making "two child figures that are being overrun by these electronics that are raising them, that almost birthed them." Ryan's still not sure what his concept is, but he's thinking of images and words: "zebra, vacuum, tornado." Mark's making an altar to electronics, since we treat them like religion these days. Jaime Lynn's not smashing her objects like everyone else, but is trying to preserve what they are. She's painting giant flowery crap that looks like scrapbooking logos to me, and placing a vacuum in it. I don't know art, but I do know that's ugly. She tells Erik she was thinking of a bored housewife, and he tells her it's a neat idea. Trong's painting the TVs white. He says it's three TVs watching another TV. Erik loves it. Peregrine saved a tiny TV but doesn't seem to be making anything. Erik compares himself to MacGyver. He's making a sculpture of a post-apocalyptic corpse. He says he got in a motorcycle accident and damaged his brain, which is when he became obsessed with making art. He loses his train of thought and blames the accident. Man, it would be nice to have an excuse.
