Many of you have been asking about my skin care routine.
Just kidding. No one cares.
This is when you need to carry 22 paintings and two custom guitar cases all at once. It’s nice to have the back of your truck tricked out for just such purposes.

little death is a monthly salon of unclassifiable performances and experiences. On the last Sunday of the month, The Mortuary invites ~6 artists to share 10-minute experiments in the common room at Thymele Arts. Each piece proposes a specific audience configuration or engagement model. October prompt: Fog Machine.
little death functions as an evening of studio visits for time-based practices of all kinds. Artists and audiences gather together in a supportive forum of exchange, discovery, and risk-taking. little death is curated through informal conversations; The Mortuary encourages participating artists "to be yourself, to not be yourself, to dive further into your compulsion or to adventure outside of your usual patterns & to propose alternative paradigms of art and experience."
Questions? Comments? Wanna work together?
The Mortuary is a laboratory for unclassifiable practices in life and art. We host performance experiments that propose new relationships between experience and language. Committed presence and intimate exchange are our core strategies in creating supportive contexts for becoming.

It's hard not to kiss these cheeks.
We think that being good gifters is a real skill. We found ourselves spending so much time finding the perfect gift for our friends baby showers that didn't feel like the same old blergh... so we crafted a premium themed gift set that’s made to impress even the most instagram conscious friends and parents to be.

Capitalism makes it so that an artist [often] has to rush in order to make a living. That is, if they have the privilege to sustain themselves via their art.
No matter how large the gap becomes between the very rich and the very not, artists will always be making art, whether or not they can live off of it.
Because we’re artists. We can’t NOT make art, even if it’s made and kept within the confines of one’s own home.
So where does that leave us? It seems that I always come back to bartering as a solution. I’m so thankful for my friends who share their talents in exchange for another’s talents. Or share the areas in which they are wealthy (not necessarily monetarily because whew, folks can grow some damn good tomatoes).
So as long as you’re able to put food on your table and a roof over your head, I challenge you to adopt trading as a more integral part of our cultural and financial exchange.
Because let’s be honest, on our death beds we think about people—we think about individual relationships and community ties and the memorable times together—not how many square feet our house was.
