This work simply is not sustainable without community support. I am a working visual artist, supporting myself and family through my creative work which involves countless hours and most often unpaid time to create complex projects using costly projection equipment, and involving research, logistics, permits, transportation, hotels and a myriad of details to execute production.
As with many public art ventures, I don't rely on ticket sales as these events are free to the public. It is only through community support that I am able to continue making experimental, innovative, and socially engaged work that is free to the public.
