From bullying to stereotypes to home misunderstandings, there are attributes one may bring onto authoritative roles in society. Add that to a hierarchical system, mostly manipulated through status and leverage, and you receive a structure sensitive to a vicious cycle of false identities and one-upping each other. The false prophecy of “staying authentic” is thrown around, blinding many into dead-end roles, while ‘privilege’ continues to be the currency slipped under the table. This is a lingering bacterium to society.
The Creature represents the antihero one must become in order to make change. When the “good guys” turn out to actually not be good, you will still be displayed as demonic and absurd, vilified as you set out to make change. The smile in the creature represents the confidence and support it has towards the goal. Shape-shifting, learning, and adapting to the environment is to understand everyone has their own personal constitution. The large hands represent the work that needs to be done to build! Focusing on creative building, allowing that which needs to be abolished, to implode. Frenemies are people we don’t need to understand, but know they are here with us.
Why we do this?
Everything is “in theory”. The way my system works, the way their system works, and the way your system works: That’s a crucial concept to understand because people stick to what they know. And, so we ask, what has been working? And even more importantly, who has it worked for? Radical change is called upon, not just by radical activist, but by people on top of a hierarchy whom are being effected by the system that forces conformity. It affects people in authoritative positions who are close to their family, and that family is diverse. It devastates conformity within the working class when we ask “aren’t you tired”, and you answer “yes”! Your dream can be dystopian or utopian, one thing is for sure, change is evitable.
So “why do we do this”? Simply put, we’re becoming the change we needed.
Who we support
There are many organizations who are doing, and have done, amazing work. As we list the organizations we support, we understand and hope this list will grow. We’ve decided to go with our comrades, who we’ve seen first hand in their initiatives. We commemorate passion in the face of capitalistic pressure, and we support our siblings in taking the steps toward change.
Who keeps us safe? We keep us safe.
