How is the City your studio? "I believe that artisanship and entrepreneurship are present in all individuals and communities. Play and art-making are rarely afforded opportunities formally and yet omnipresent informally. Every day aspects of life: from reinterpreting family recipes to the bee-like dance of community dynamics -- they are all replete with abundant creativity and careful curation. They are also avenues for healing, wellness, and progress. Drawing upon the innate human impulse for creative survival, I meld design, popular education, law, and art-making as powerful conduits for community empowerment and social change."
