About Adam K. Fujita
While working towards his MFA at the Products of Design Department at SVA, he learned how to imagine product. To take what we know about a product or a service and to listen to the users of these products and to improve it. Ultimately to solve problems. Now, his work investigates and reimagines protest, reimagines compassion and reimagines advocacy. Learning all along the way, and feeling newly reinvigorated to try to make a difference.
“Altruism is the belief in or practice of selfless concern for the well-being of others. Or when we act to promote someone else’s welfare, even at a risk or cost to ourselves. We live in a time of great apathy and diminishing empathy. I think this is so dangerous. While our country is attempting to be lead by a regime of moral midgets I feel like we as artists have to do more than say things. We have to take action. In building this show I wanted to push back on the popular and lackadaisical phrase “ I don’t give a fuck ” and in opposition of this I focused on 100 causes, non-profits and orgs I give a fuck about. We are trying to raise as much money as possible for these groups.
If we lose sight of our compassion for other people the fabric of our society begins to erode. I am so moved that we have the opportunity to to something charitable, beautiful and lewd in the attempt at problem solving and serving others. Thanks for being a part of it with me.”
