I wrote to graduate school at the end of 2017 knowing, at that time, that I wanted to merge digital technologies with art, and create new ways for museums and galleries to interact with viewers. I was still in counselling, and I was finally dealing with things I had boxed away. I met a girl from Lima who is also an artist, and together we began discussing the plight of women and minorities today. We conceived of, created, and curated a show called eNOugh. Basically I was getting to know myself again, and what I stood for; what I am passionate about. I came to know that I have a lot of energy, that I am willing to play long games, that I really should care more about money but care more about people and life, and art, and that I do not really care to much to get married, or have children. For me it is important that I help good stories emerge in the world, that I help women and minorities to help increase, overall, their opportunities, and that I write children's books that help children to think about certain things from an early age to help them in their lives. I believe that children are smarter than we generally give them credit for, and that by getting them to think more critically from an earlier age, that we can better aid them for the future.
Now that I am in graduate school, I am looking at the senses in depth and figuring out how art can utilize all 5 senses in a way that could truly grow and expand the perspectives of others. I am still interested in and creating books for children, and I still at the end of it all want to have helped women, children, and other minorities to have better chances in the world, through empathic and expanded perspectives for everyone. Slowly it feels like what seemed a jumble of experiences and educational pursuits (animation, media arts, education, aromatherapy, fashion, and history) are all coming together to make something happen.
I am currently researching in four areas; the senses in regard to neurology and psychology, the senses in regard to the art world, curation, and women's issues. I will post about certain things; books I am reading, things I am thinking, galleries I have visited, people I have spoken with, and experiments I am doing. I hope that you find it interesting, but I also hope that it helps me to figure things out, so that I help things to keep moving, and aid in the pursuit of a better world.
