My grandmother, all of my grandmother's friends, and a majority of people who don't know my grandmother (but would like to), have been perplexed as to why I would ever want to make things and provide services for people that don't involve monetary exchange. "What's the point?" they ask, scrunching noses and furrowing brows. "Why would you want to work more than you already do - for free?" Here is what I usually tell them: Our daily lives are overburdened by capitalism and the expectations behind Capitalism. I like to change it up a bit using a playful jumble of colors, sounds, textures, movement, ideas and words. My desire is to live freely in mind and spirit, to absorb moments fully and communicate with the world with lightness and love. At the core, it comes down to love - all I want is love and to me, art is love. Love, love, love. If you are interested in partaking in free creative actions, you might be interested in reading this book. It's one of the only books on the subject of free exchange in art. Enjoy!
