As a documentarian and perpetual storyteller, much of my work was devoted to exploring issues that communities were grappling with that few beyond the community were aware of. But in today’s age of image over-saturation and a perpetual news cycles, I feel as though my images no longer have an impact. So I’ve created some initiatives for 2022 that I will experiment with to help address the issues I feel we must devote time and energy too as a collective.
Each initiative is attached to a treasury wallet that can be viewed on etherscan to see the transactions and flow of funding as these wallets grow. My ultimate personal goal in my work in the NFT space is to redistribute as much wealth and power back to the artists, creators, makers and devs who power the beautiful aspects of our world. I also hope to distribute wealth back to the marginalized populations that our policy makers have openly ignored and exploited for centuries. That’s it. That’s the whole mission.
That, to me, is Beyond Art. Join me?
In case you haven’t seen my images before, here’s a brief slideshow of my documentary work produced in 2006 & 2007 while exploring cultural preservation in displaced populations in India and Palestine.
