//Art titled: “This Brutal House” by @sjcarthy and scored by @gunngary for @the14thfactory // It is difficult to continually intake videos of our trauma, let alone live them. In thinking about the awful murder of George Floyd by the police- in my hometown of Minneapolis- as well as the constant deaths and injustices that force us to remind the world that #BlackLivesMatter , I think about this video by @sjcarthy and @gunngary . It’s what @sarahelizabethlewis1 has discussed as our inherit and inherited state of GROUNDLESSNESS// Never having a place to land, to ground ourselves, or to feel safe in the world. As black people, we have had to reassert our right to EXIST, to breath, to walk, to be joyful, etc for centuries. I’m grateful for every one who has continued to do the essential work of reclaiming our rights and tirelessly advocating for EVERY person in our community who has been made victim by state condoned racism. You fill me with hope that through collective action progress CAN and WILL be made ❤️ #BLACKLIVESMATTER

Paris Fashion Week with @Samsungmobileusa x @ThomBrowneny was dreamy & inspiring and I used my #SamsungThomBrowne flip phone to capture the day & lots of up close moments ⭐️Loving being #TeamGalaxy because they empower & support creativity. I’m smiling, thinking back to these moments in the beautiful city of Paris.
