The Mind Is A Fertile Field Is a creative pursuit examining large group dynamics and commodity culture in the domestic sphere. Themes of entitlement, predatory behaviors, and sunk cost fallacy, take shape in a fake MLM  presented through a series of performances, sculpture and installation, all while impressing my own desire for more circular economies. 


Through a lens of humor, I am navigating a bit of hostility towards entities and individuals who continue to take advantage of vulnerable populations with empty promises of entrepreneurship and wealth. Business models based on recruitment principles that often lean cultish. “Party Culture” is a prominent selling tactic for direct sales representatives. It felt natural to extend the pipeline by hawking party supplies, something that associates will need for their other businesses to succeed. Most party supplies are single use so you will always need more and always be creating unnecessary waste.


I take a maximalist approach to painting as a means of preliminary world building to document medleys of memory, wish, and hang-ups. Oil paintings depicting figures surrounded by luxury goods are supplemented with sculpture and installation made from homemade bioplastics, silks and steel. Performance pieces based on aggressive recruiting tactics further entangle storylines with entitlement, social hierarchies and desperation.
