RORA (Rabbits Orchids Rocks & Art) is an Etsy attempt, experiment and intervention to rethink the economy of handmade goods and dropshipping as a source of good vs. profit.

Launched in December 2020, one year after Covid-19 swept through the globe and devastated the economy in so many ways. In particular, independent animal rescues and the animals they foster / take care of are struggling as they are ineligible for government grants and ongoing lockdowns/social distancing have prevented them from throwing fundraisers to pay for food and vet bills.

Majority of proceeds (at least 50%) from RORAshop will be donated to various animal rescues, particularly those taking care of special needs animals.

Once sufficient funds get accumulated, this page will document where the proceeds/donations went to.

Started by trans-discplinary art-ivist Stephen Chen to consolidate his recent work; as well as facilitate collaboration with others. Stephen’s oeuvre is often allegorical as well as simultaneously deconstruct and hybridize the very forms he works in. Disdaining academic and esoteric expressions, as well as institutional conventions and practices, Stephen explores complex ideas and issues immanent in his works through experiments in form and technique.
