Just one week left to see #AaronFowler's project "Bigger Than Me" in our storefront window!
The title is taken from a song by Big Sean, in which the rapper realizes that his life experiences and motivation to succeed are shaped by forces larger than himself. It also speaks to Fowler’s artistic process, which is often informed by outside sources.

"There is whale-hunting, which supplies some of the toughest scenes. There is sea travel and migration... There is ecological depletion, the melting ice caps, the inexorable waters rising. There is also pure beauty: fish in shimmery dance, frothy wave caps out to infinity." —@villagevoice on #JohnAkomfrah
