I can’t rest unless I act.
I am constantly trying to better understand—and if need be, reconfigure, subvert, or topple—accepted and repressive systems, ranging from the design of a street to the systemic oppression throughout society. For protection, I survive as a trickster, a shape-shifter. In my work I use deliberate, coded language, recognizable by various communities in my audience, as they experience and decipher it through whichever specific “perspective-glasses” they are wearing. For sanity, I often focus on the building blocks of my neighborhood. To date, I have changed the trajectory of a street; shoveled snow off over fifty miles of my neighbors’ sidewalks; created gathering places both complex and simple, wherein insulated Mormon leaders mingle with the disenfranchised; and written musicals roasting important artists who themselves lambast the art establishment.
