In September 2015 I starting working with the Humanist Hub, a community of atheists agnostics and allies in Harvard square, to coordinate and build a children's program.
Our goals are to create an inclusive, empowering space for kids to take ownership of their own creative, empathetic, and critical thinking skills and share that journey with like minded families and communities.
I began this series with the goal to use every expressive art in my toolkit to explore philosophical topics still budding in my mind; etymology of non-theism, optimistic nihilism, visual epistemology, emergent divinity, paradoxes of truth, science, religion, love. All the music would be my original work, available for download, all the art would be my own, and I wanted to have a dialog with you, the audience, about the ideas presented in the videos.
It evolved as each episode came out, my art changed, the music changed, and your ideas influenced mine. It ended up becoming a sort of instruction manual on navigating the modern intangible expanse of human ideas, complete with its own soundtrack and fantastic audience commentary.
I've connected with strangers on levels I never imagined was possible, and shared ideas I thought might forever remain trapped in my head, structurally unexchangeable. For me, this has been a marvelous, secularly sacred, multi-modal, multidimensional, dance of meaning making.
The future of this series is still a mystery to me.
