"Papa Dough & Perception"

Once upon a time, I constructed a portrait of Donald Trump made entirely of Cheetos.
(Think about that, please.)
With that, I've made other art pieces to inspire thoughtful contemplation. Like "Papa Dough & Perception."

So I ask you...
What is Truth?
What is Lie?
When I sit with my friends on both sides of the political spectrum, we tend to agree on policy.
However, we uber- DIS-agree on WHO to Vote for.

Maddening, isn't it?
I have my theories rooted in personal, deep history of interactions with narcissists. I believe oligarchs are BAD people and I do NOT want them in places which wield world-impacting power.

That's me.
I can scream until I'm red in the face.
I can cry and moan.
Or, I can make Art.
And take responsibility for my life and relationships.

I do believe in facts.
In science.

And like every other human, I believe I AM RIGHT.
Yet, could I listen with compassion to my fiends with differing opinions.
I'm doing my best.

It's time to come together despite our differences....

Once upon a time, I constructed a portrait of Donald Trump made entirely of Cheetos.

A devastating story engaged me; a democracy of dreams had turned into a nation of nightmares.

Centralization, analytics and Web 2.0 had silo-ed our citizens.

An uncivil conversation of Brothers warring with words ensued.
Sisters striking kin and kid with poisonous, political rhetoric.
Media monetizing maliciousness made madness of this magnificent land....

Politicians on both extremes pitted against the other.

Dems and Repubs mirrored hate, and greed, and gnashing teeth, and no wisdom of the forefather.

Blinded with no passion to protect the future or peace or planet.

Once upon a time, I created a portrait of Donald Trump made entirely out of Cheetos.

Can art save the world?
Probably not.
Can web 3.0?
Can combining the two?

I believe it CAN, and WILL, if designed correctly.
If shepherded by consciousness.

Art can urge us to swallow the purple pill.
Not Red.
Not Blue.

One Nation.
One People.
One America.
One Democracy.

This is my hope for saving our entire, beautiful world.
For saving our democracy, our land.
For saving our souls.

Please join us on this journey.
"Chew On It."
Swallow the purple pill.
No Red.
No Blue.
Just US.
Together.

If alive at this time, the Beatles might have sung;
"Come together.
Right now.
Over Web3."
And Art.

Salom.
Adoni.
Amen.
Aho.
LOVE.
Firestone
