Poetic Operations Collaborative was recently highlighted in the local press.
“Art is not enough to protect us. Her stance is an effective reminder that a painting will not stop bullets, will not keep us safe. Participating in #stronger will.”
“For a long long time, women and people of color were not allowed to imagine the future. But now we have that opportunity. So I want to keep this lab space, the Poetic Operations Collaborative, open. Having a lab like this has been a major life goal for me, having worked with other artists, like Ricardo Dominguez, in their labs. There’s a long history of artists being innovative, coming up with new technologies thirty years before they’re appropriated by corporations who turn them into marketable products. I just want to keep doing that – creating the future in order to try and create a better future.”
