More > success, struggled to expand his canvas and strive for greater things. Overall, there is an arc of evolution happening in these writings.

More > 'individuality' and wasting their time in plastic media instead of watching reruns, buying iPhone 7, or mowing the lawn. What the legitimacy of the artist has to do is validate some aspects of artifice, shamanic totem loving, and some fluid manipulation of forms in and for themselves outside of 'utility'. What the utilitarian society says these people are at once both 'useless' and 'profound'. They are outside of the calculus of utility. But I contend they are square within the eye of the commodity hurricane. What the meta-financial community does to them and can bet upon their profundity goes beyond use. individual profundity, somewhere along the line, will hit the jack the lottery.

This guide is composed of icons representing the object signifiers many young black men wear on their persons. What signifiers constitute alleged transgressions? What signifiers equate these men... More > with unforeseen violence? What signifiers jam or block signals causing confusion or misinterpretation? Although intended for young black youth to reflect upon the ways their bodies and psyches are read by not only police, but also everyone, this guide speaks to all audiences in confirming the power of semiotics and the ease at which our perceptions of self and other can be categorized.
