these texts are an archive of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area from march 2007 - march 2015. it stands as a record of close to a decade of my life, charting the struggles i faced as an artist, daughter, and lover. messy and chaotic at times, eloquent and poetic at others, these texts are an index i am proud of. it was here in this electric box that i learned how to be honest about my experiences and the person i needed to become. it was here that i first learned the truism that words make the world and how to trust such a beautiful, rife, hard fact.

thank you for meeting me here in such tall grass.


my artist website is here.

2 things

1. i've been getting so many sweet emails about that print! yay!!!! no fear, we will do it again soon. the more i think about it and what it means and how i'd like the piece to function in the world, i've come to the conclusion that it should always be free. and i mean, completely free: postage paid by me. that being said, whenever i've got cash to burn i will offer it up for consumption. print as needed as i am able.

and to all of you who responded so enthusiastically on round 1, your packages have been shipped! thank you so much!!!

2. thinking of seances and acts of mourning... witnesses, ghosts, memory... collecting the fragments... evidence, ritual, rite.
