ARTIST STATEMENT:

Who provides media literacy training to the community at large? Who equips the community with electronic print, oral and visual communication instruction as we cross this threshold into the new millennium? Sunchildren, we obtain 85% of our information from visual images and 15% from print media. Most of these commutative images are totally irrelevant to our daily lives and our experiences. Who is training the community at large to take on issues of identity and combat the subliminal and often extremist notions that pervade our culture?

The immensity of media in terms of social identity and representation is historically unprecedented. It is imperative that we facilitate counter-activity to fight the increasingly deep penetration of stereotypes in the world's culture. In our sexually diversified and multicultural society, issues of identity are of great significance. What is at stake is our relationship with each other and with our future community.

Whether or not we are connecting with each other - whether or not our creative energy is one that can deliver us to a greater humanity - will determine our evolutionary paths.
