I had the opportunity to speak to Art Report about The Four Pillars and where the initiative is headed. Here are some of my favorite excerpts.
On The Mission:
“I believe that this is my soul mission. I’m doing this because I feel called to do it so strongly that I can’t not do it and I am so grateful to have found something that fills me with so much love and joy every day. I feel that I am simply doing my part in contributing alongside many others to help usher in a new way of existing for humanity. One where everyone is actualized in their own power to be an autonomous, amazing human that is in full expression of who they are and the gifts that they have to share with the world.”
“I hope that someone viewing the project will become inspired to share positive disruption in their life, in whatever form that takes. I also hope that it will create and reaffirm positive actions that are being taken, showing us what we are capable of as individuals and as a collective of humanity.”
On Where We’re Headed:
“I’m continuing to expand Part I of the Four Pillars – We Mirror. The series will take on many forms–including live talks and workshops at spaces like Soho House and a continued release of artist interviews featuring Hank Willis Thomas, Jonathan Mannion, Ashley Owens, Jillionaire, Zoe Buckman, Richie Shazam, and more– showing many different interpretations of self love and how it reflects into the world around us.
The next pillar, Uncover, will focus on deconstructing illusions to access the beauty in truth within ourselves and within our environment. I will be releasing several interview series, including Arab Muslims and Jewish Israelis exploring coexistence in Jaffa, Israel; Democrats and Republicans sharing hopes and fears for the future of America; and an environment-based series focusing on water, food and more.
We are in a constant state of transformation that is dynamic and in flux. So is this project. As I release series for new pillars, we will continue to revisit and expand upon previous pillars with the intention that Positive Disruption will become the new social norm.”
