  • #TheMonthOfBlueWater — Jenny Holzer / TRUISMS. Jenny Holzer is pretty famous for TRUISMS and I am no exception in understanding why. Holzer's work, her text large and unflappable, gave me the very real courage to believe that my ideas were not only worthy of being written, but that they should take up more space than I could have ever imagined. Sometime in the early 2010s, I started making shirts that said exactly what I wanted in the world. Eventually, I wrote a poem that used all caps called "Song of My Selfie" in which I hoped to accomplish something close to what Holzer gave me—comfort, humor, and absolute seriousness towards revolution.

"I used language because I wanted to offer content that people—not necessarily art people—could understand."
.
"The art world was relatively clean then, though, because there was little to no money to be made. [...] It was a paradise in that it was about the work; it was about the content; it was about striving to give."
