I've been trying to wrap my head around WTF happened in Charlottesville Virginia and all I can come up with is thanks America for still being awful and making my work even more relevant. Torches and chanting, armed militia wandering the streets, a clear lack of police force, it was a recipe for complete chaos and tragedy. Unfortunately that's how things eventually unfolded. I'd like to think someday people will look back at my work (hopefully in a museum) documenting the last eleven months - the social and political maelstrom that's been 2016/ 17, and they'll say something like "man this guy was ahead of his time, and had his finger to the pulse of what was really going on." But trying to compete with meaningless art in the digital age is freaking exhausting and demoralizing.
