From a Gen Z perspective: A series of photos, videos, diary text, and sound documenting the complexities of identity, self-discovery, and artistry. 🫶🏽​​​​​​​🪐
I've often got feedback that work was deeply personal. Over the past couple of years, I've been seeking to define my aesthetic and language in still images. Through this journey, I've come to realize that my voice is clearest through visuals and storytelling.
 I've observed that we often hear from artists, long after they've reached their peak. Rarely do we get insight into their struggles and how they navigate through them in real-time.
 I believe every artist's voice deserves to be heard, regardless of their current stage of development. It's common for us as artists to feel isolated, thinking that nobody can relate to our experiences. However, the reality is that there are many shared emotions and experiences among us. 
Art Diaries is a safe space where artists can open up and be vulnerable, fostering a sense of community where we can support and learn from one another.

In the first episode of Art Diaries, I speak with Jet Jameson, a comedian, actress, and screenwriter — she’s more than a triple threat. In this episode, we discuss the making of her one-woman show, "Jet, Live" -- how she juggles her responsibilities and passion projects, and what it means to kill your inner child.

Diary Entry 01:

I feel like most people grow out of their childhood dreams, but I never did. I've been acting since I was a young child, and it's what I've been most passionate about since I stepped foot in my first acting class.
Growing up in Los Angeles, the industry was all around me, and it wasn't long before I was auditioning for film and TV.
Now, nearly 18 years later, I'm on the other side of the country with a BFA in Drama, still taking acting classes and auditioning for film and TV. While sometimes I feel like nothing has changed since I was a little girl dreaming of becoming a movie star, in reality, a lot
Throughout my training, I had repeatedly been told of how challenging it would be to pursue a career in the arts. But no amount of warning can really prepare you for what it's actually like. Over the past year in particular, I've come to doubt my decision more than I trust it, and find myself frequently questioning what I'm doing with my life. Sometimes it really feels like things can't get any worse. But any time I think of giving up, I feel like I'm breaking a promise to my seven-year-old self. This art has become such a huge part of me that I don't know who I am without it. I consider myself incredibly lucky to pursue my love for the arts. I've spent my life surrounded by the most creative, passionate, and inspiring people.
 Collaborating with and witnessing other artists brings me joy like nothing else. Having grown up in the industry, I've been able to watch my friends and peers succeed and achieve their dreams, which is truly one of the coolest things.
just hope I'm making 7-year-old me proud.
Thank you to my mom, friends, and mentor Lina for your support and guidance. <3
