Logging & recording value of my daily activities, responsibilities and ways to save money since 2008. Including categories like “Avoided Shopping”. Every time I made a conscious decision to curb my urge to buy something, I would make note of it in the journal. Marking the effect on the environment, personal benefit and loss. The choices affect my daily living but also the work I create, the possibilities, to make a living. from our art? Questioning artists choices, the continuous pursuit of projects that will probably not lift the financial burden. When do we splurge? What do we need to create our work, to live from it? The performance includes myself vocalizing my journal, bringing into view relationships of financial gain and identity, especially as an artist. Two other performers echo my words, clarifying, questioning, judging and auctioning. Inviting public participation. We wear clothing donated for this project ornate by the lint, remains of family laundries. The remains of the performance, including a lint sculpture, are included in an installation. Performing with me, Ruth Phaneuf and Robert James Anderson, curated by Matti Havens
