They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. With that being said,
I feel as if I have a responsibility to my “vision” and the legacy of brokeN to set the record straight.
I created brokeN a year ago amidst the chaos called 2020. A way to creatively document the pandemic, social/political unrest and the collective heavy feeling of the unknown. We were all feeling a little lost and at times brokeN. My intention was to create a safe place for people to purge their feelings and frustrations. Hoping that they would discover that they were not alone. It was therapy for me to witness and I hope healing to those involved. All 62 people who participated.
I am hopeful that brokeN’s journey has just begun. And that this series will find its way out into the world on a grander scale.
brokeN was a “collaboration” amongst many through their participation in the series but the idea of brokeN was not a collaboration. It’s originality and energy was formed by me, and no one else.
