I Just Have A Lot of Feelings  (2018) is a series of text and multimedia pieces dealing with everyday interactions with racism, misogyny and experiences within the art world. Often they use humour, sarcasm or irony to point to these instances in a way that is both unique to the instance and yet relatable to a wider audience. There is a sense of earnestness and yet pointedness to each of the texts.  The structure or design of each piece has been framed around a particular web icon that pertains to the statement. This is done to draw reference to the Internet as the way in which many people share and disseminate uncomfortable experiences that occur in their everyday lives; through the use of platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. This imagery is also universally understood as symbols of communication and signage. The texts themselves are personal accounts of experiences that I have had in my life, but the icons and often the sentiments themselves are ubiquitous to many people.
