Robin's "Informed Memories" is a deeply personal body of work that delves into his family's multiracial DNA and their struggle with racial identity. Through his exploration of racial constructs, Robin discovers the power of reading books and how it has equipped him with the tools to examine complex issues from an informed viewpoint. This concept, known as "Paideia," was introduced by W.E.B Du Bois in his seminal book "The Souls of Black Folk." 
Robin uses traditional and digital mixed media within his creative process to create unique effects, textures, and aesthetics that allow for unconventional artistic expressions. "Informed Memories" aims to illustrate the layering within our lived experiences and memories. Through his family's complicated experience with racial constructs, and their collective search for "Paideia," Robin invites viewers to explore the complexities of their own experiences.
