mememe series

This series was created during the height of the Black Lives Matter movement during the pandemic in 2020-2021.


In short: It's about the chaos that set our world on fire.


In long: In 2020, America's racist undertones were finally revealed on a global level. This reinvoked the spirit and work from the 1960's towards equality for Black Americans. The Black Lives Matter movement also outed individuals and family members who have been able to hide their bigoted opinions, companies that have been able to get away with their racist practices, and government representatives that have been turning their cheeks to their community's cries for help.


At face value this was a positive progression towards equity for Black Americans and change for us all. Yet the lack of the true understanding of the realities of what racism has caused over time and how truly engrained racism is in our culture a lot of the purpose of the movement got lost in translation. Everybody stood on their curated soapboxes taking their positions digitally, often times without doing any real work. This was compounded with our already me-centric culture that Instagram has created; a toxic culture of us v. them which lead to everyone screaming over each other through our phones.


So that's what this series is about. A visualization of America as a dumpster fire.
