A Message to the viewer:
These videos are a consortium of "projects" early work from installations that bust apart (Soap Box Gallery "This is My Body This is My Blood", curated by Jim Greenfield in Brooklyn, to "The White Show" in Kansas curated by Darin and Shannon White and "Blood and Fire" in Los Angeles and New York curated by Sam Kho). To rooms literally built out of creativity and community (Blue Star "Revisitation" in San Antonio, Texas) and ("The Middle of Somewhere" in Mason, Texas) .... to video projects with friends, a camera and pie from a local café, or a giant donut (that tasted great, but was just too much donut for one person) .... the hope of this section is to show that life is an adventure... and should be embraced a such. Shear with your friends, build a bigger canvas of creativity, enjoy the process.
To young artists (perhaps to those right out of art school or thinking about an art degree) embrace the process, say what you need to say at the time you need to say it. Really try to make things happen you will learn more than you think in the process. Respect and ask advice of older artists, and community leaders and art organizers in your local community that have survived the gauntlet of life and creativity, their words and life's stories are precious and to be respected. Reach for a bigger canvas, you CAN do this thing, you CAN make things happen abroad it just takes some time and patients, stick with it.
Being an artist is a lot of work. Just old fashioned hard work. Your friends will take you places you never thought possible and so will you... it will take a lot, but it is worth it. Stick with it.
Many of these shows in the videos were critically reviewed and written about in the context they were shown. Again, to the person who is engaged in there art carrier, or is in the middle of something creative, or is trying to make things happen... You can do this, and you will love the process. Embrace the process.
