"Salad and I Know It"
2014
Collaboration with Crystal Palmer
Performance (16 minutes), 4 Dog Bed sculptures, stage setting

Performed at Brooklyn Arts Exchange with Crystal Palmer and Debbee Pool, February 14th and 15th, part of "News Cycle" curated by Max Steele

Two friends find the dog bed in this study in Midwestern pragmatism. They're dressed at the precipice of taking control of their lives: shopping for Benefiber and/or praying for bathroom home makeover. Self-help aspiration acts as an "almost" against an order of statement toppings placed with a reverence for choice.
