Spending time outside is a priority. Working on a farm offers me a connection with the ever-changing seasons as well as an intimacy with many the different cycles of our world (weather, growing plants, bugs, food systems and infrastructure, etc.). When I'm not grubbing in the dirt, I'm exposing myself to, and writing grants for, the beautiful multi-media art that my friends and community create. I hope to bridge the gap between the robust and practical farm world and the ethereal arts world by analyzing the fact that these systems are constantly changing and bleeding almost imperceptibly from one configuration to another.
