"Just like don't have them on my phone. Because i've realized that i'm gonna lose the battle ten nine times at a ten and it's not worth one time at a time that i get it and i'm really hopeful that over the next decade we are going to build a healthier relationship with our phones. Because i think we've gone way too far to the extreme in the last few years and yeah yeah what. I think that that mentality is something that will serve us for all technology that is to comrades so like a again. It's you know you're right. There's the the most talented engineers working to keep us addicted to these things but at the same time to there's the onus is on us to to to develop that healthy relationships right like so we can if we can take that responsibility than i mean. We'll we'll win as other things. Continue to evolve in whatnot rights sub. Yeah for sure and like listen. They're also built like you said they're they're built into phones out to like screen. Time is great. Like i generally just like turn do. Do not disturb from like ten pm until seven thirty or eight. Am in the morning. So that when. I tried to open my phone. I am immediately reminded to just put it back down and i think again i think as we as customers demand a healthier relationship tools are going to get built to serve us because at the end of the day like we need to. Yeah i think everything. Everything's really demand driven in that way. Yeah oh man well this. This was super fun. I mean i'm really really digging the whole idea of like the long-form Ide- shen practice. I'm gonna. I'm gonna bring that to our team as well and see what we can do that. I think it's a mirror. That's an amazing thing. And and it takes. It takes a lot of time to do one well. And so i think that's the brilliant piece of it is like you wanna have lots of good ideas like i have will. I have lots of ideas all the time. Rarely do i have a good one. When i have a little a little barrier in front of me that says okay like if ideas really good you need to go through the time and energy to get it on paper and iron ironed out and find the data to back it up. You're just creating a funnel that ensures that only the good ideas really come out of it and so it's a great. It's a great mechanism to screen out all the bad ideas that we have and yet try to try to spend our time and energy doubling down an investing in the good ones will analyze. There's a lot of You know independent creatives freelancers and whatnot. That listen to this show like the thing. I like about the practice. Is we've been talking from a standpoint of the team in presenting new ideas like that. But i mean this up really works in in all situations right like again. Like if you're creating a list of all these ideas in your. I don't know a freelance photographer. And you're thinking of this new project or something. It's probably worth that time. Sure and map it out and take two three pages as the standard exactly. Yeah all every time now. When i'm brainstorming ideas with france. I always say like this is how we're going to do it if we think it's good enough. Let's let's throw down on paper. So yeah yeah that's cool around what's one thing you you know you've been thinking about lately or that's been on your mind or something that you think we should be thinking about You know it doesn't have to be at athene related to what we talked about but just like leave us with a thought or a an idea that floating around in your mind. Get the juices flowing. Yeah so the quote that i heard. Recently i think it's confucius anyways says that. Yes it is computers. So it's it's her we have two lives and the second begins when we realize we only have one nice and so i just love that quote because i think i'm at least moving onto the next stage of my life and thinking about kids and and all of those things and i just wanna to make sure that you always have in the back of your mind that like hey like you got one life like low live at the way you want to and yeah and so. I think it's a hard thing to do because of for me. It's it's the timeline piece of it is like when you compromise a little bit of the short term to sort of achieve longer term goals vs when you're always just like achieving eric. Doing exactly what you wanna do when you wanna do it and just finding that balance is a really tough one. But i just love that quote and it resonates. That's beautiful beautiful way to add to wrap this up that that is wrapped. So thank you so much for joining us. Ben were kin listeners. Connect with you yeah. That's a good question.

"walters" Discussed on WMAL 630AM
"Walters, your husband's company. Good morning. Good morning to our next guest who is a candidate for lieutenant governor in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Head of the Republican Convention set to take place tomorrow. Winston Serious joins us. Good morning wisdom. Good morning. Good morning. Good morning, so good to be on your show. It's really great to have you with us. I I'm interested in I I see that you Virginia pilot quotes you as saying that you think that there are some politicians specifically in Virginia that benefit when citizens are at each other's throats that they're crewing political power unto themselves by making people fight With one another. How would you be different? Should you become the lieutenant governor? Because that's not the way I roll. I am trying to be a true servant leader. You know, I'm from Jamaica and I see what happens when people get power and too much power. When I was in office because I am the first black Republican woman ever elected to the General Assembly, and so I tried to be a servant leader. I tried toe ensure that the citizens Of the 90th district, which I represented parts of Chesapeake, Norfolk and Virginia Beach. I wanted them to understand that the power that I had comes from them. That they have the power. The seat does not belong to me, and when I'm no longer there that they should always demand of their leaders through servant leadership, So that's what I modeled when I was there. As we've been talking to different candidates throughout this process leading up to the GOP convention tomorrow, lot of we've had a lot of discussions about schools, but you are very specific. You want school choice in Virginia as a way to combat this indoctrination, give parents a choice. So instead of having to constantly fight and have these kids subjected to things that they don't want you said, give them the choice. How would you do that in Virginia? Yeah, you know, um, one of the things that the Democrats like to tell us is that they love everybody more than the Republicans ever could. And yet, what I see from them. Their love is poisonous. For example, you see what's happening at Thomas Jefferson High School where 73% of the population of that school is Asian, and so instead of us asking What are the Asian parents doing? What air the Asian kids doing that causes them to be selling so much? No. Instead where, Uh, we're dumbing down by saying we're going to keep some of these kids out these Asian kids. And then we're gonna institute quotas so that we can bring other kids in. And so we think that this is going to make everything better. So I'm saying if we had had full choice Then all of this nonsense would have gone away because you see, the parents would have been able to decide, especially those who don't have the resource is would have been able to decide. I'm going to take my kids somewhere else. I'm going to take the money. Somewhere else so that they don't have to be subjected to this nonsense And so they can excel in life. And it's the same thing with critical race theory. You know, I was vice president of the State Board of Education and Let me tell you something. The kids weren't learning. Then they're not learning now, and they're really not learning now because of province. And we already know. For example, in Fairfax, Our kids are failing. I can tell you in Chesterfield, one out of six high school students are failing. They're just failing all around, and so You know this cove, it is so is so smart. It does not affect private schools, apparently because private schools have been open five days a week all year long. So there's something wrong there and we need to be able to have the money. Follow the child instead of the money being given to the brick building over there. Yeah, maybe with those private schools Cove it is on the waiting list. Just like everybody else I can't get. It s so winsome steers. I want to ask you about your running for lieutenant governor. I wanna ask you about the current lieutenant governor, Justin Fairfax. You know he's running for governor. He made some news recently when he compared himself to George Floyd and Emmett till during a Democrat gubernatorial debate, suggesting that several women who had accused him of sexual assault on that made him basically the same as Emmett Till as as a black woman hearing this What did you think of Justin Fairfax taking that position? Please, please. What you're hearing is a drowning man who was trying to save his political career. And you know you ought to be making those choices before you take certain actions not trying to associate yourself with through injustice. And many of us black. Uh people were very much offended by it, whether we're Republicans or Democrats. He needs to go home and figure out what he's going to do with his life because of decisions that he's made. And you know, and stop this trying to curry favor. We don't want that kind of leadership here. We've already had black face. Um North, um, with his incident and fantasized views, and we've already had blackface, Harry. They all need to go home and figure out the choices of May. We need some different leadership here. This critical race theory, for example. That their past that they have passed and which is now supposedly to help people who look like me. US black folks, You know, it's It's a farce. The kids aren't learning. Do we really have time to teach reading? Writing and racism? You know China is going to eat our lunch, Vince. It is going to they're going to either life. They are scheduled China to be the number one superpower in 2030. Do you know they have more honor students than we even have students and we have to have time to teach. That all white kids and all white people are bad and everybody else is good. What is that going to do for the morale in the school? You know you just you brought up the three R's and I was so interesting. They've suddenly changed to reading writing and racism. You're totally right. Thank you. Winston Sears. Good luck this weekend, a part of that GOP convention running for lieutenant. Governor. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you. Thank you. All right, 6 44.

"Mean. I think that's really exciting. Part that as i've met more designers i've met more design educators and i've been trying to kind of navigate within my own practice what the importance of flank. A book like this can be. There's so much power and it's such a privilege to be able to do so and learning even how to do this process and learning what it means to kind of work with the publisher and like all of that sometimes unknown inaccessible out of reach sort of opportunities. And i think that like. It's so important that as i as we learn. Oh is this how it works. How we sharing that back out to the folks that we might be working with that may not know as much about that process and so i think to contribute to the design field in honor. It's it's a privilege. I'm excited to do so and and i'm also really just thankful for everyone in the book because i mean to be open and share. Their stories is also can be a very vulnerable position to put yourself in. And i'm mindful of protecting their stories and making sure that they feel like they're best represented and and so i am so just thankful for their contributions and participating because it wouldn't have come together without their stories now. You are an artist. You're a designer. You're an educator and academia. How do you balance all like do you find that they're i. It's at opposition that times. Like how do you make it all work. You see it as like a kind of rotating hats. I think sometimes the focus is on one thing more than the other during the year teaching fall and spring semesters really sort of primary focus and then sometimes in the summer. What's really nice is. There's a bit more time to work on like more self driven projects or or other kind of commissioned works and things like that commission work happens. I think like year round so it happens even as i'm teaching and collaborations with different people as well and so..

"I think to me now as you sort of you know started bright polka dot and then even as you're of navigating the postgraduate world. How did bright polka-dot change like. Did you sort of started off in one way. And it shifted into something else. I think what's interesting for me with navigating wanting to work with different design studios and different agencies and again trying to figure out how to mesh more corporate work that has nothing to do with me versus projects that are kind of self driven and are interested in various topics racine's in the very beginning. My portfolio on my website would reflect a lot of work. That wasn't necessarily from me but might be client oriented. That was no. It was just really corporate in a lot of ways. And i wasn't sure what what i needed to have up there to get a job to look a certain way. I think i was very conscious of wanting to put work. That looks like a thing would impress someone else gas. I've gotten older and you know as my projects have changed in what important values are important to me at this point. What was more important was having a blend of projects that i was excited about. That were really connected to me to communities that. I'm a part of that could really just push forth topics. Conversations have a critical point of view. And i think that that's what kind of shifted in the last. Several years as my portfolio has continued to change in projects that i've done are kind of like a discussing. Larger grander topics tonight had previously. Let's talk about some of the projects that you've done through bright polka dots. One of them that i saw.

"Like prepare to worked as a designer when i graduated. I think it was really. I felt like bereft of the academic environment in some way. Because my thesis project doesn't undergrad was called black and i was investigating my identity. Like who i am what i wanted to say like i was saying before and the design work was like very it might even be like if we were kind of situated almost kind of like as a contemporary artists right so i was making work in a way that like what i was concerned about was how it was going to be perceived in a more corporate context and how i could apply for jobs with mike thesis saying black. Very visibly on it. I think i was just trying to. When i finished getting out of school like i was trying to figure out what my design community would be. You know and it was a very different time. You know we have all these different like digital spaces slack spaces where people are convening in connecting in meeting. Each other yeah. I don't think that i knew what it meant to have. A community didn't know. What kind of design. I really wanted to do or go in. So i was like a freelancer for like the first year or so out of school where i was kind of navigating through job boards in finding places to do smaller freelance gig projects with it was also in that time that one of my former professor had reached out about doing like a teaching in a class at the university of bridgeport. And so i was really. Can i teach like. Can i do this and i think her reaching out. And you know because my mom is a teacher like connecting with her was really kind of support they were really supportive figuring out the thing or not figuring out but helping me figure out how i could sort of begin to teach this collegiate environment because i started in that way was like freelancing. I was teaching. I started out with a hybrid practice. And i feel like i've kind of maintain that ever since in some way where there was like a kind of a triad of working in industry teaching and having also a research practice that may not necessarily be for clients at the same time Now is this kind of the beginnings of bright polkadot. He and i mean actually fright. Polka dot was born out of a web design class that i had in college because we were all asked to like create portfolio sites. And my name is so common that there's like hundreds of people that have my name. Kelly walters so i was trying to come up with these different permutations of kelly. A walters kellyanne walters. I was just trying different versions of things. And i didn't like the other options that were left like busy dot net so i was like well. Maybe i'll just go in a very different direction. And just kind of think. About like a moniker. If you will like many of the fabrics patterns that i always sort of gravitate towards our polka dots and so i was really interested in this idea like polka dot. And then i was also interested in adding bright to it also metaphor for myself but also just kind of like a lively edition to polka-dot i guess and so i went with it and there's a very particular pattern that i used for one of my designed books that is kind of also the very specific inspiration. I i don't know where it is somewhere in my apartment somewhere but that became like mine. My website name and i've kept it ever since and i i know it just it felt right..

We're starting to see the light at the end of this long pandemic size tunnel so i know what you mean especially that we have new leadership. There's vaccines that are out there. People are getting vaccinated. It feels like things are starting to go into a different direction Yeah i just. I feel like i. I'm just anxious for everyone and making sure that we can safely make it through the second year. I guess of this like new world that we're in and i'm also really curious to see kind of patterns or observations are made in this time that will affect us longer than this time. I guess longer than the year in change it's been. I'm really curious to see what it looks like. And like being able to reflect back maybe even in ten years or five years like what i remember of this era. So i don't know like reflexive i think in that way like looking forward and back if i can at the same time as funny. That's that's kind of january. Is after the the greek i think. Greek god or demi-god janice has one face looking for one face looking back so that's kind of apt comparison. There are things different for you now than they were last year. Trying to think at this point last year we were. Maybe like a week out before everything shut down. If i recall. I think the last time i was in new york was like march eleventh. When we were told like two days later everyone had to sort of stay at home. And i think like things were more sort of uncertain in some ways at the very beginning of that last year as i reflect on where i am now. I don't know. I feel like they're still unknowns. But i'm i'm living to sit inside of the uncertainty. It's very uncomfortable to do that. But i i don't know i think more than last year i feel like this year. You have to sit with the uncertainty in a way that i don't know i don't know how to really describe that exactly. I just feel like i'm navigating what it means to not know even more than before and not take for granted what was thought to be stable or when was thought to be certain. If that makes sense yeah. So what is a regular day like for you now. What my home is my office is. My classroom is my social space. So you know it's it's the all purpose room for many things. I think it was. I think it was weird to navigate that last year of like finding what the delineation is between all of those kind of spaces. But i think depending on who you're talking to in meetings whether it's co workers or your friends or your family kind of figuring out a way to feel as though at your own environment home environment that in a separate area or Time of the day that it can feel as though you can feel the shifts in it. sometimes it's about just getting up and walking outside and coming back and feeling like you've gone into a new room or changing the lighting or opening the blinds or turning on the light. I think it's like these like small actions to make it feel like you're in a different space. Sometimes so i think that that's what my that's what my days like more and more now of just like what are the subtleties that i can adjust in my home environment to you know feel like i'm in a different space. I guess has there been sort of a change in how you've been teaching or anything like that. Uh yeah definitely i think. Now it'll be a full year of teaching remotely online. And i think that for my program in the communication design program at parsons i think we had transitioned to an online teaching format and i think what was really challenging in the beginning with like trying to figure out what does it mean to do a critique in this environment what does it mean to build up student report and morale and all of those in community or around like students that you are working with that previously. You were seeing physically in a particular space. And i think the difference between kind of what i've learned in that kind of crisis moving in a somewhat of a crisis mode to teach remotely versus starting the year teaching remotely just like i've been working with students all year that i probably won't ever get to meet in person. And so there's this difference in trying to figure out how to get to know someone as much as one can an online format through smaller group conversations or having slack channels or things where people can sort of commune in a digital sphere. But it's definitely been different than previous years

"Even call one of the best kept secrets in the industry. Can you tell me about that. And why yes so. It all started. So when i was known here. A lot of people knew my name but they didn't know my face in there. Used to be a. I think it was called the twin cities hip hop awards here and i didn't even know that i was nominated as the best kept secret but i ended up winning. Had no idea and then. Dj de mille. I think he's i think this was at the end of mayes space. I think so. He sent me a message. Was like dude. You want house like one. What and so that kinda m. Because i wasn't there just made everyone look me up online and then it kept on going where there's a producer native missed reporter. Which is a eminem's hype man in one of his close friends and he's been making beasts wherever he's won grammys and everything last year. Me and him actually collaborated over gene. So a lot of people know my name. They definitely don't know my face so the whole best kept secret thing just keeps on like traveling through while you're definitely making noise and you're definitely gonna have one grumpy lady in minnesota. That's for sure. Yeah so did he. Pandemic affects the sound of this track. All knaw. It's it's weird. Because i like a when i made the song i didn't know what is going to be big because might previous singles. I've one other single. That's like a throwback hip hop song. But the rest are kinda like hard to describe. They were kinda like experimental tracks. They weren't really big. That's why i'm shocked. This is my biggest song. Because i wasn't sure if the classic hip hop sound was gonna be like accepted concern like all the music. That's out now. So i wasn't sure but definitely it has impacted might sound 'cause. I'm really just focused. Like i have else to do so. I'm really focused on just bringing back that classic pops now. I think that definitely is time for people. Start hearing that again on the air same. So let's talk about the other clouds you did. You've worked on a lot of tv shows and you're singles are going to be featured on them. Yes it's Vh1 those love and hip hop shows in the housewives shows. Yeah i got a contact from a producer. She wanted eat. So i sent. I sent her. Like a hundred. And some beets and then along with songs. And i didn't know if they were going to be used in the next thing you know i get an email saying over half have been new so i mean i really don't watch those shows but it's kinda cool that a lot of reality shows are going to be playing. My songs is pretty cool. And it's actually adds that opportunities coming to you because that might be a way for artists to supplement their income until they started in the live games festivals. And stuff like that. Yeah and actually because of those shows Even since the last time we talked. I've been contacted by three or four management companies as well trimmed china's time signed me but it just wasn't a fit a musically mlive lansana on it they artists they manage are like the newer ones like the young kids like the trap style and has to.

"Bap style. Happy walters is a noted music producer with years of noise in the industry. This breakout Abused his house on the beats welcome. Happy while sir. Thank you for joining our pod. You're coming out of the hood of saint paul minnesota talk about that Basically i was born and raised all over. So i was born on the east side raised on the west side and then settled on the south end. So i think that's what also kept me out of trouble too because i wasn't settled into one place. Psychologists bounced bounced around all around saint. Paul and harold happen I think it was just moving around like wait one time growing up. We didn't have a place to live so we had to move in with my grandma over on the west side so we were over there for about two and a half years. And that's actually where my dad's from so it was easy to move but then we ended up settling on the south end witches not a bad area but it's definitely not the best background music. You started quite young. Did you not. Yeah my dad is actually a drummer. He's traveled all over the world. I think call him. Uso tours right. But they're called. The heat did a lot of though is like before. I was born in when i was born so i grew up around music like an music musicians my entire life which is weird that i never joined a band. It was weird. So you've always been a solo. Act your always been solo. Never joined the group or anything. I remember getting offers to join hip hop groups now like now thing while the music do you put standing. I really liked kipp so i. I don't question your desire to stay as award as primarily isn't artists. Have you worked in minnesota. Us and then is what like in. The reason why. I started posting music. Online as far as beads is wanted to branch out. Because i wasn't able to leave like money wise. So i figured i'm just gonna try and get my music out in a lot less so i started posted beats and that's how my name dot known. I actually went under a different name too. So i was known as somebody else in that i started posing beats online and my music kinda just took off but no one knew me as rapper though they just knew me as a producer and i have worked here. But it's kind of like one of those things where i feel like minnesota is a place where you make it out. You don't really make a lot of artists like there's well known singers who literally are known here land. Everyone knows who they are performed. Probably six seven days a week but outside of minnesota now one knows who they are. So i kind of wanted to be the one to like breakout. Kinda kinda like prince teflon seventy follow after have worked in la yes. I'm worked with numerous numerous emcees. Jay gatsby a band called that kid is you 'cause i actually when it comes to produce it's mainly hip hop bye also to write to like i just like to write. I'll work with anybody as like any genre. Do secrets jar on as far as producing an like as far as my own music. Yeah but as far as writing. I do wanna work with different artists. Just just to expand my writing. How do you find these are defined them online incident local seen on c. It's all online. Like i was never a huge scotia media person just because i'm older but honestly it's like the best thing like i've connected with so many many people like there's a singer in the uk. Just young. that. I'm gonna be working. It's just been hard because of the seven hour time difference. He's really good and found me and was sharing all my stuff in so we've been trying to set a date in plan where we can actually work on stuff but it's just been hard because of the time difference time zones do mix up things and what does she put on. It's like euro pop that's popular the uk. Yes she's actually really well known and and that's why would shock because she sent me a dm house like who is this like. I thought she was fake. I wasn't sure if she was she was a real person or not as as yeah I tried to reach out to him. The lead singer him and i actually have a single out. It's called bad medicine. It was kind of an experimental track but the lead singer yet The right now all the venues are closed here so they're not really doing anything and i'm not sure if they're working on their next album or not. I'm still waiting on him to respond to my text to be arena. Career took took a bit of a break. Me that athens. Yeah so. I put out a mixed. Fda nineteen in it light just took off here and then years later i met a girl and then i settled down in. That was a six year layoff of literally. No music being made it was horrible. Is the worst and sal Low ask you basically told me it was weird because i was making a living off of it but i don't know if it was her family. Whatever because they basically had no idea. Like what i did if it was a real job and stuff like that so she talked me into quitting in getting a nine to five and basically about five and a half six years. There was zero music Except for the one time. I snuck off to la a snug. So la derating stories in her so she wanted to hang out or we had plans to do something i said. No i have a family thing. So i was able to leave on a friday comeback sunday morning and i hit hollywood boulevard sunset boulevard so hard with cd's in a busy business cards hustle story and had to fly back I ended up posting a pitcher on mind in.

"Looking at how we look at black culture so there's like an aim on an to be doing this research partially because i was not aware of this research and so many people need to be but then at the same time what is my responsibility. As an artist isn't maker to also be presenting images that offer the beauty in the positivity that comes out of being either a black person of black culture. kelly walters sounder. Bright polkadot a multidisciplinary design studio and art practice. He's also an assistant. Professor of communications. Design at parsons school of design kelly. Welcome to the podcast. I thank you for having me. I want to start by asking you about something. I saw on your instagram feed. Recently you wrote the way you make is intertwined with who you are. And i loved the statement but i also loved your comment about it in the Column next to the statement in which you said and this is my question you said. It all started with middle school powerpoint presentations. Is that how you got. Your start did you. Did you know looking at powerpoint as someone who was that young that there were better fonts and better futures ahead. I think so i mean. I think that it's funny. You know when. I look back now. I definitely had an interest in type. I didn't know really the it would be considered graphic design But i knew that i was that person loves making power points for the group projects that we had and i think word are was the little pop up box that you could like experiment with like different typographic characteristics. And so i love that. And i loved putting together the The trifled boards for like science. Spare presentations i was. I was doing the same thing. I would use word to my utmost capacity to create typographic. Headers but i didn't. I didn't really see it as design. I just knew that. I loved working with type at that point and so as i got into high school i didn't. I don't think. I really took an art class until either my junior senior year because i didn't have space for it. I took bands. I was a music person So i never really got into our like in that kind of way or seeing it in that way until like the later part of high school. So if i'm reading your bio correctly since were going through your life a lot of change when you got to the university of connecticut Communication and communication design. Maybe we should start with your undergraduate thesis. So you con. I definitely was a double major in Communication sciences which was in the liberal arts program and then communication and design Which was in the regular sort of art history department and i was grappling with at that time. Just trying to understand who i was. This is a black woman as someone at a predominantly white institution and my thesis Senior year was called black. And i created a series of books that were responding to either stereotypes. One book was like as many words. As i could find that have been used to call a black person in the united states and everything was printed on black paper and balanced and sat on a black table that i built says well and yeah it was. I think the first time that i realized i was kind of crossing a little bit of this. Kind of design meets contemporary art space. a really liked you know. Creating experiences for people to engage with language university of connecticut was on my shortlist. When i was looking for colleges and i thought long and hard about the disadvantages and advantages of being an a place. That's that's close to rural communities. It's far away. That's cut off as an school and they had good ice cream. But i worried worried. I worried about feeling That isolated at such a tender time and it sounds like that's part of what bubbled up for you. Yeah i mean. I think that when i was applying for schools i you know i have family members who were really adamant about like making sure that we like for my brothers and i that if we were applying for school to consider applying. Hpc's and so. I have great aunts that went to skiing university or howard university so there was a threat of it. That was always there. But i think that you know growing up in connecticut. I really wasn't sure how far away to go. And then i think the other thing that was a draw oddly enough as they look back that i did marching band so i was in marching band the entire time i was at uconn you know and they had a really big marching band and and i think that like the ability to sort of jump into a community that was sort of familiar and i think through growing up i think being at uconn i realized the things that i needed or was missing. Think after leaving. i think that's why. I traveled all over the place for the next few years. Just trying to continue to expand and grow beyond kind of being in connecticut but at some point in this journey as a maker you became interested in media depictions and historical depictions and this became a whole new part of your work. That really interests me. Because i think it also speaks to your curiosity as a historian is a cultural historian of the space that you're in having a maker. Could you talk about how that came to be what was the. What was it that got. You started on looking at media depictions of black culture. Yeah so i think from around the time of grad school. I was experimenting with a lot of things right. And i think that what was happening was that i was looking always. It seems that images of black individuals in the spaces. That were hyper visible. And i was just trying to test visual vernaculars. But i didn't dive. As deep as i probably have been until last few years where you know i was revisiting. That work and trying to navigate. Had i already done all that. I could write. Had i already figured out all that i needed to and there was a few articles that had come out in the news. I think one was about like digital black face in digital media fixation and i was really inspired by that because i was looking at a lot of like images from television and film and trying to make sense of them through design work that i was creating but i felt like i was replicating. What already exists in wasn't creating anything new. And so i think at that point i had to pivot and really do a deeper dive into understanding more around the historical context of certain stereotypes and how they came to be and i think a lot of most recent work that had been doing has been trying to kind of navigate and track.

That's the penguin. Batman right and randomly I ran into you at pro circuit the other day. That's hilarious. You come over come over to the US here and there used to come every six months. What business is basically I bought a lot of clarence stock? Vanya mine stuff and are you. She bought a bunch of stuff out of say but to be honest most of its abort most the good stuff now serve so I think good there for a while because Mitch is a hold on you know that stuff sitting back laughing. The nineties last game I know right right and it it's crazy. How much stuff is growing and getting bigger? And I don't know how much everyone's rated Mitch's thing by now so but let's say so. I guess one of the things more into and we'll get into your career. You work for Renard you work for. A bunch of people superlight technologies your newest thing thing titanium bowl to supply a lot of teams with their bolts on their hardware he worked on the US market. How's that going really good? I started doing it. Basically when the exchange right term Bob for us a couple of years ago and I was coming over here for containers for bikes and it just got to the point where I couldn't couldn't just there's no point in doing it on whenever we're building bunks if you buy the stuff I always look to get made a good friend of mine. Who Does Formula One the fastness. I went to him saw tolkien. UNLV told me Pretty quick and he told me about the grades and the processes awesome materials. Now I started source of suppliers against Megan of samples together. It's work on lots of money. Didn't think I think it would cost this much. It's we're doing really good moment. Yeah cool good to hear Yeah Vo Yamaha just went from being like a privately funded armed Yamaha Saddam to be in the full factory dealer. Now we've been a food as factory supplier. So that's a big thing for US district staff out. Yeah absolutely early nuts get good too good to see. US teams if people are listening or people you can contact wasps on his website. DOC DOT COM. It's good pricing thing to like compared to tie. Because I've been buying tie for some of these finished bikes that I've been building and of course I use it for many years on many teams and your your pricings good good. We're trying to get it down still crazy expensive. My target is under a thousand bucks. But that's true even hard with the more stuff we make. The mobile will the Modern box not just m sect's might bounce anymore most thus shoulder special shea a knows those catch you out 'cause that really expensive to make you order those by the hundred the regular about three thousand. Yeah you know it's funny. You're right WHOA. I got four fifty and you look at the bolts that like apparently back in the day like Yamaha if a bolt doesn't need to be an eight or ten like seatbelt and aside panel bolt and this an exhaust bolt are all different lengths and sizes. And I think years ago they used to be all the same. You know looking at that. You know that used to be just a boat with aluminum machine washer now they will in code. But it's when you actually take a Yamaha for example you know Yemen has got six belts the referendum just so much to do then once you start dealing with the teams. They weren't different stuff which is cold because because you know we do the bolts for the extra months effectively. KTM clump. Yeah so we. We custom build kits for the teams torture I quit wrench in a long time ago. You're still kind of doing it a little bit but you were you. Were you building these vintage bikes for the the. US guys but basically you were a mechanic for a long time and GP's and in America and you've moved on to the next stage in your career as at high. And I always tell people wall because I'm just like I would never go back to full time mechanic. You'd have to like kidnapped my family I guess and then make me do it. I don't know it's so much work back in the day while I think it was on my sound. Some dude telling these kids that. Go to ease the way they just weren't reliable. You know then they take a lot of work eh softball crazy now. Take Stock 456 suspension on a pipe bomb you go. Yeah Yup I was building. You know. Take four hours to build L.. Device Bike Justin stuff and it just seemed to be a lot more work and of course when I was them. You know in the Box van days and you weren't just wrenching engine on stuff. You were building motors. You were driving. The truck could be three or four days. No Grocery shopping. Yeah exactly organizing parts. You know luckily suspension guy wasn't doing that myself but you know I was building Wales and yeah just doing everything. I don't think a lot of these guys do that. Much Chen million. You look back on your career and sometimes thing what was I thinking I wouldn't change. I I know right. I think you're you're a little bit like me. Where like we're foreigners we're in America? This is the big dream and we don't have any family are real friends outside of the people at the racist so why not just work our balls off. That was well. That's that's kind of where the foul guys benefit. Because there's no distractions Fitschen you out because you were up to laval you got nothing better to do the hang out the show. So that's kind of what you do. So farley castle vet. Those nations has been ten years fifteen years ago. And it's about Yeah I've done it ten years. It's it's a looks like a phenomenal event. I gotta get over there at one point and time. Somehow you got suckered I mean you got into into asked into building these bikes for this race. For the American riders come over and everybody from Tedesco to do Bach to Kahlo still a sheen. The Dow you name them they've come into hoop. They've come over they've race. These races fro and you've been the man for the most part to build them. These K X five hundred CR. We are five hundred whatever kind. They want their their contract. Needs or whatever. How'd you get into that first of all I mean obviously you were building bikes for magazines and everything? But how'd you become the point man for team. USA This farley rows of no idea. I'm lucky enough to pain you enough. The nineties as the will dig at the moment of the eighties around Guam priced so kind of know what he's GonNa like and I kinda neither strengths and the weaknesses Gollnisch never easy. I've got mechanics at home. It works for me. They work on four-stroke stuff. And I don't know I could learn but no point down on I don't WanNa to learn you know. I take my hat too but I'd really prefer not to talk on the four stroke on the to- stroke stuff. You know I was having. It's a lot easier to to work on something more familiar. When you know you know people get carried away with a couple of years ago? They were always everything now. everything the You GotTa do just enough with just what. It's supposed to look like him. It's not hard to find them pitches. It's gotta be. I was kind of watched everything going Tom. Right on the side. One in desperately to be a mechanic and you taking this stuff and I guess Are you running out of K.. Ex parts like are you know stuff's hard to find. Now you know steph starting to be Looking into we've we've got with my Formula One guy he's helping me out with digital printing with rapid prototyping. I'm I'VE GOT MY HANDS ON I. Five hundred esotique piece clutch cover which we've now got a plastic brush bought into a bar to make sure it works and you know trying to develop that I'm getting. I'm trying to get the machine in costs down to get those to be sensible money. Oh okay that'd be pretty cool. Yeah things that you know because it's not you can't get it you gotTa Make It. He's not going away. Luckily I'll I just think it constantly shifts is like the ninth stuff now is getting in. Because the what's what's what's the dump stuff you can't get you buy. Ah a CR two fifty eight nine. You can buy it for nothing. But you want forecasts conqueror of the money you know and you off gone to Ufo to Maitland of looked into it is making plastic mounts expensive unit right and at some point these guys just threw that stuff away or whatever you know just runs out about you know the the promote England they keep for this not ninety nine law Eichel keep talent you should stick to like twenty five years old and it gives people chance to buy a bike from Ebay and device in a couple of years but they keep to say nine thing started offers a also eat former vases but he thinks penguin I never thought of that. So yeah the rules eighty nine. That's right so yeah come on man you guys got got open that up a little bit because there was an eighty nine the longtime ago..
