I'm an aspiring visual artist based in San Jose. skeptical dreamer/escapist that loves fiercely. spooky, goofy, feminist. I like stories where animals can talk and women have powers. Below are updates, musings, and the things that inspire me. If you want to read about my specific art projects, check out the first four tabs in the menu below.

yes, academia is unfortunately very ableist, classist, and exclusionary.

Not only is academia very ableist, classist, and exclusionary, it’s meant to be that way. Take it from someone immersed in the field: it fucking sucks. One of the few things I take solace in is when I can make my cohorts extremely uncomfortable by pointing out that they’re actively being ableist, classist, and exclusionary. Watching the color drain out of their faces and hearing very awkward silence is the best, I ain’t even gonna lie.

This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.

Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.
