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.

horse and vapor

what i want you to see comes at the very end of this short film of Banks Violette's show at Maureen Paley Gallery in London. Banks Violette became one of my all-time favorite artists the very second i first saw his work.






that is the tri-star horse projected over a mist of water.

if that isn't a poem, i don't know what is.
