  • When I walked out of the elevator I realized why I felt moved to come here today. I recognized your style from some pieces at the Whitney last year. This work feels so important and speaks to a loss that runs deep back in our histories. Beyond the decay of a town you grew up in, what kind of connection are you making to the land through your work? (I'm having trouble formulating my question, I feel like there's more to it than that... But that's the best I can word it at the moment)

  • How did it feel to see your birthplace demolished and how do you think or do you think your pictures have helped build up confidence in the people that were hurt?

  • Powerful & beautiful work! I teach art for social change at UW Tacoma & will b sharing your work with my students. Do you define yourself as an activist artist or as socially engaged one? Do you feel your work has an ideal location(s) for display in order to have the most profound impact? Do you have interest in working collaboratively with other artists, community members or organizations? I have tons of other questions but I'll let you decide if you want to be in dialog. www.artsforchange.org. Thanks!
