Adam's "ART" Manifesto: A Look Back
We should all have an internal and personal declaration to ourselves.
This personal "ART" Manifesto is instead tailored for a public eye. I'm the creative type, and we like to share alllllllll of our emotions and thoughts...on about every topic you can imagine. It's not that I want to push a belief on to you. It's that I use the honesty and candidness of myself to hopefully inspire you to know and like your true self as well. Or don't like that person inside of you. It's all your choice. It's up to you, really.
I was greatly inspired in a very specific way throughout the last couple months, and I used myself as the way to express it. I channeled everything through social media and used filters such as pop culture, music, dance, painting, selfie culture, visual references, pure honest talks to the audience (yourselves), and many more avenues.
It doesn't matter if you understand what you see in this video because that isn't the purpose of why I'm doing it. You need to draw your own conclusions and find what it can mean for you. Notice that I use the phrase, "what it CAN mean for you".
Even the honest talks to the audience are part of the show. From start to finish, you are going to be somewhere halfway between a music video, a selfie culture-inspired political speech, a bathhouse, a church and reality.
**YOU MUST TAKE NOTE THAT THIS VIDEO IS 15 MINUTES LONG. IT MOVES AT RAPID FIRE THOUGH, AND IS COMPRISED OF MONTAGE, MONOLOGUE, SPECTATOR DIALOGUE, AND FUN ANNOTATIONS**
I'm now inspired in brand new ways and finding different areas to channel. Everything feels different, and yet it can almost feel exactly the same. What I do know is that this last chapter has been a roller coaster of a ride, and it's certainly reflected in the mood and visual nature of what you're going to see. I had to capture it in the gayest, most honest and sexual way with tenderness and true devout love. All encapsulated here.
Please - if there's ONE KEY TAKEAWAY I can provide for you as guidance while you watch this video:
--DO NOT OVER-THINK THIS--
Have fun. Laugh. Make fun of me or feel inspired. Turn it off it it becomes too much. Those are just guidelines. The RULE here is to just have fun. So go do that for me and let me know what you think, loves.
