Los Angeles-based artist Johanna Jackson makes paintings and poems. The words on this bandana are a poem made up of language collected from the half-asleep/half-awake place where Johanna starts her day. Think of it as a painting that can be used as a bandana, and in fact should be used for all the things that bandanas are used for, particularly to be worn and carried around.
The text reads:
I am dreaming I am walking on a city street but I need to acknowledge that my name is the same as a computer program. I need to acknowledge it and take the next step, whatever that is.
