Meet Laci Jordan, a multi-disciplinary artist from Huntsville, AL currently residing in Los Angeles.
Hey Laci! What is your earliest memory of cannabis?
Hi! I remember being super young and hanging out with one of my older brothers. One of his friends lit a joint or something and my brother said “Ey, don’t light that weed up around my little sister” I didn’t know what it was at the time but the smell was distinct haha. In regards of my earliest memory smoking – I never smoked cannabis until I moved to LA about 8 years ago. I smoked with a friend but had no idea what I was doing and definitely wasn’t educated in strains. All that to say I smoked a SUPER strong Indica and learned the definition of being “stuck” first hand.
What does “feel good” mean to you?
To feel at peace, positive, and happy.
What does your perfect Sunday entail?
A perfect Sunday entails a day of no work obligations or deadlines, a day where I can move at my own pace and be free. I like to start my days with a good devotional, a joint, coffee (who doesn’t like a hippy speed bomb), and good music. If the weather is 75, sunny, with a little breeze then its PERFECT. I also don’t mind a good boozy brunch as well.
Do you prefer Sativa or Indica?
I’m a sativa girl for sure, Indica puts me straight on the couch haha. In all honesty I think sativa makes almost most activities a little more fun. This can range from Ikea trips (which can get tricky) to hanging out with friends. Two of my top things to do after smoking is cleaning my apartment (with taking the occasional dance/snack breaks) or brainstorming about something fun. Its something so carefree about the brainstorm process after you smoke.
If you could share a joint with any person dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Wow, this is harddddd. I have two, one is more practical the other is crazy. Rihanna and Jesus Christ.
Rihanna is an obvious one, her personality is so cool and unapologetic, I just think we would have a good time and lots of laughs. Smoking with Jesus is just wilddddd I think the conversations would be life changing (obviously) plus, I have a TON of questions haha.
Which artist are you excited about right now?
I reallyyy love the work of London-based artist Lakwena Maciver. Her paintings and murals are so eclectic, bold, and graphic. Anything you see of hers automatically draws you in and holds your attention – they also incorporate empowering statement such as “The best is yet to come.” You can also usually spot her work from a mile away due to her color and pattern choices which gives nods to both illustration and graphic design. I’m in a space where I’m exploring different disciplines and materials with my own work. Looking at what she produces lets me know that I can use my talents and translate them to another medium without sacrificing my voice. She’s also a black woman which, we LOVE to see it.
What keeps you up at night?
Ideas and aspirations. It’s so much stuff I want to do in this life. I try my best to “wind down” at night but I’m usually thinking of projects I want to execute or random things I want to see come to light. It’s usually when I daydream the most.
Keep up with Laci’s work here.
