Police code 415 is for Disturbing the peace.
I believe in the importance of our collective adherence and respect for the systems of law and order in our culture. I also hold in equal importance civil disobedience and individual expression of voice even if contrary to the rule of law.
This contradiction, and existence of two seemingly inconsistent truths is a theme that has long been with me. I am both old and young, full of potential and failure. I am a rule follower and believe strongly in the power and potential of our systems. I also believe that there are deep rooted wrongs in our systems that have to be revealed, spoken of, acknowledged and torn down. I find great meaning when two disparate things become entangled and thus inform, enhance and offer a home to each other (data/narrative, entropy/order, subject/object, me/you, artist/art, order/disturbance, compliance/agitation). We have to keep doing the work together to strive for our collective potential, even if it feels elusive.
