Artists have the unique position in life to uplift with reality – their reality – the kind which graciously acknowledges the human condition and makes it clear that You are Not alone. Jhene Aiko has shared a small piece of her big life that must feel BIG to so many people.
Big Sean has shown his support for his girlfriend demonstrating his pride in her recent accomplishment “Trip.” This short movie is a graphic and illustrative look at the human struggle with the paradox of addiction – feeling comforted by the same substance that destroys you.
The story in trip involves a man and a woman taking a trip together and the seductive nature of drugs and the “travels” a person undergoes far away from normal life. The film includes acting, poetry, animation, and musical numbers.
In celebration of the completion of this project, Aiko got honest with her audience about the healing power of creating art. Click on through to read her post in her own words.
