The "in which our heroine..." Series
A series of living love letters in which our heroine subverts an unwanted reality through Life as Art.
This Kickstarter acts as a hub for showcasing the "...in which our heroine" compilation. As a backer, you will receive daily updates on this process as I accumulate more material for "...in which our heroine." Included in updates are videos, personal notes, silly Photoshops, and other tidbits.
The goal is to end with a coherent published oeuvre inspired by living and gifted in turn to You. (The finished format is to be determined, because we haven't invented an affordable way to insert videos into physical books, yet.)
the series (so far)
Chapter One: "...in which our heroine glances up from an empty room with no door and realizes she's been unwittingly recruited into an empty life as a petit-bourgeois imposter"
Chapter Two: "...in which our heroine attempts to subvert reality by producing art at a maniacal pace"
Chapter Three: "...in which our heroine is tangled in a love unbeknownst to man among snowflakes"
Chapter Four: "...in which our heroine considers art in relation to capitalism and rewrites her manifesto all day"
Chapter Five: "...in which our heroine forgets her typewriter and rekindles the desire to create projects merely for the sake of creating projects"
Chapter Six: "...in which our heroine goes on an adventure in a new neighborhood and wonders if she's a hipster"
Chapter Seven: "...in which our heroine is taught how to box"
Chapter Eight: "...in which our heroine publishes a manifesto for all her future selves"
Who: a lovable fuck-up.
What: a living love letter chronicling one human's raging obsession with life, art, trauma, and magic. Oh, and capitalism.
(In other words, I'm creating as much art as possible in a short time period, then turning it into a finished work.)
How: a variety of interrelated mediums. Including, but not limited to, experimental video, audio field recordings, street performance, personal notes, public theater, manifestos, and poetry (of course).
100% of your donations go toward distributing, producing, and finishing this work. Costs include finalizing (design, editing, printing), creating copies (text, DVD, photographs), and sending off the finished piece to backers (imagine receiving a virtual or physical package full of photographs, notes, video, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and other surprising tidbits).
Thank you for taking a moment to watch me burn out. If you think my work is interesting, find me on Patreon...I could use your donations as I wander from city to city typing Free Poetry for people on my typewriter! (Typewriter Poetry)
