Carrie Mae Weems: School of Visual Arts 2016 commencement address

This was the commencement address for my own graduation from my master's program at SVA. As a fan of Weems' work for many years, I flipped out when it was announced she would be our speaker. Her delivery is chilling. How do you measure a life?
