Today on our way back to boulder, I had a conversation with Richard about the pressure that sometimes exists on making certain type of art if you belong to certain groups or communities. There is this hidden expectation and pressure that one has to talk about things related to their community.

While as an artist we are also humans and our lives have many aspects. We might decide to talk about one aspect more than the other but it is totally valid to make art that does not have anything to do with the community we belong to though as an insider there is always a privilege that comes with it and it is good to take advantage of that.
