Stacey and I have been doing artist collaborations for the last three years. Ever since the time when I found a 30" x 40" photo in the back of building 101 at Hunters Point shipyard on my way to teach an after school art class at New Traditions Creative Arts School in the Western addition of San Francisco. Stacey Carter and I have a studio among almost 200 other artist studios ( one of the largest artist colonies in the US). I like to do work on found objects and this was just what I was looking for (a photo of an old ship from the shipyard) I thought the office must be throwing it out so I took it and began working immediately on it. I the went to teach my class in the middle of the class I got a call from Stacey Carter(another artist at the Point Eric Joyner saw me with the piece and told Stacey) I made the mistake of putting the phone on speaker and one of the students heard the conversation. Afterwords the student asked me "Derek you steal art from other artists" you can get were this was going. Ever since that day we have been doing artist collaborations.

The precise measurements of what determines social class in society has varied over time. According to philosopher Karl Marx, "class" is determined entirely by one's relationship to the means of production (their relations of production). The classes in modern capitalist society, according to Marx, are the proletariat, those who work but do not own the means of production; and the bourgeoisie, those who invest and live off of the surplus generated by the former. This contrasts with the view of the sociologist Max Weber, who argued "class" is determined by a mix of economic position, social prestige and political power, rather than just relations of production.
