"What is Freedom"
The visual installation piece that was brought to you by @5thmindyoga 's Junior Class of Centennial High CO/'19 in collaboration with myself as artist in residence ended yesterday.
Though the exercise was not easy as well as not for profit, i reaped rewards that no monetary value can give. To be able to be a true conduit for the energies that they exude past instagram was growth that I was aiming for, but also being able to work with a class, teachers as well as city officials, and to somehow represent Compton thru this project was a language that I couldn't have learned on my own.
What is language but the true bridge between gaps that would never have otherwise met.
Hopefully thru this one as well as future projects - may we bridge the gap that currently exists amongst a lot of us. Whether that be the image we have of cities like Compton, or the misunderstanding and mistreatment of others that we may not have in common.
Language in all of its forms,
to be the bridge that may start to a step in the right direction,
That is my freedom.
Thank you guys
