My Friends Call It Dumpster Diving – I call It Flattery
As an artist classically trained you learn that either you have creativity or you don’t. From about the turn of the century I set out to chronicle my journey as an artist.
Most of the entire journey can be found at iko.haus or in the archives found there from the various websites I started at the start.
I can uneasily look at a multitude of companies, many with millions in capital raised for funding. Peers that I’ve worked with over the years words echo in my head with their revealing thoughts that Blacks cannot be football quarterbacks in the NFL.
All the evidence of the uneven playing field especially for Black artists. But all this towards the sunset of my career has been socially seeded to history even in archive.org
What historical documentation is often overlooked is work at conception is dated, the blogs and articles are all dated. So when the chronology of concept creation is created no matter how many millions my counterparts secure it is all digitally evident that their White privilege concept is really the result of Black innovation.
In the 21st Century there is always digital evidence or social media somewhere.
