The T.H.o.U. List
The T.H.o.U. List: Things Related to The History of Us Project
It seems like I’m always trying to convey to friends how I’ve come to think about a certain idea, and what I say is filled with “I read this book,” or “I was listening to this podcast recently,” or “that reminds me of this movie I saw”… and well, I can barely keep track of everything I’m reading, listening to, or watching. Here’s my most recent attempt at organizing my thoughts. ~ Maritza
WHO I AM & WHY THIS BLOG
Artist, San Francisco Bay Area
I ask a lot of why questions, along with how, what for, and who are you/who am I questions. I make pictures and write things to make sense of what’s happening around me. I learn all sorts of fascinating things as I go about my days and I’m presenting as much as I can for you here.
I believe in a patriotism that has courage to tell the whole story of who we are as a nation, from celebrated accomplishments to murky contradictions. I believe in loving my country and rejecting any notion that fear or hate should define us.
So, welcome to this place where I’ll store all things related to my intention to make work that personalizes how we relate with each other when dominant social forces push us far from the ideals many of us claim to have.
