Detailed info: http://ow.ly/okoc9

Do you enjoy art? Are you a creative type? Do you enjoy hanging out with strange creative minds? Or are you an artist? Bring your medium with you and create off our creation... A jam-session of a different sort. Use my Evoco process as one of your raw ingredients! Sketch my mess, paint of the sculpted Samar, record the sounds, shoot photos, sing about it, video it... I want to see what we create.


Do you enjoy making art or witnessing the process of beauty? We want you there to sit back, and enjoy and have a lovely afternoon of beauty and creative energy.


The gorgeous Samar, my performance partner for the upcoming Oaxaca, Mexico performance, will be my model and subject.

Donation to our Oaxaca project encouraged.
** Oaxaca, Mexico, here we come! Samar & Midori, with Eliza Barrios, are creating an amazing site specific performance in Oaxaca, Mexico for Dia de los Muertos. We're putting out a jar as a fundraiser to make this possible. All funds raised will go to this performance!

[We also have plans for a special announcement there!]

DATE. TIME. LOCATION. COST.

  • Date: Saturday, September 21.
  • Time: 3pm - 7pm
  • Address: Dana Davis Photo Studio, 3270 Ettie Street, Oakland, CA 94608
  • Cost: Give what you can... (We'd love it if you'd bring libations or snacks to share.) Any and all donation will go to our Oaxaca performance.
    Funds go to make this evening and the Dia de los Muertos performance piece possible!

FLOWERS + ROPE + FLESH + SUMI = ART.

Come on by and help me make messy art and beautiful memory with my amazing performing partner, Samar!

I'm working on an ongoing project of physicalizing moments of irrational beauty and creating artifacts of the process of memory formation. This starts with me sculpting people with rope, flower arranging them, painting them and using their bodies to create abstract prints on paper. These are the artifacts of fleeting beauty; like dust left behind your hands when you try to catch a butterfly…. These shapes are beautiful and strange. They're imperfect and distorted as memory. I will then work on these prints, embellish and alter them, like dreams retold over and over, to make scrolls of odd pleasures.

Your Part and Your Promises:

You have a part in this!

We ask all guests to be fully present and engage mindfulness in sharing this.

Do you draw, photograph, paint, compose, sing, knit, video, design or otherwise create? Please create with us! Bring your camera, easel, clay, yarn, or what ever medium (nothing with open flames!) and interpret my work. It would be lovely if you let us know if you plan to do this.



You promise to leave your yesterday at the door.

You'll do your best to leave your tomorrow at the door.

You'll enjoy the company you bring and new ones you meet.

You'll witness and take pleasure in the art being created before you.

You won't text, e mail or make unrelated phone calls.

If the mood strikes you, converse with other guests, or make out with your sweetie.

If the mood strikes you, dance.

If the pleasure suits you, just sit and watch.

Looking for Help & Volunteers. Any DJ? Door person? Art Assistant?
We're looking for a bit of assistance and volunteers to make this possible...
If you can help, please drop me a note.

  • Door Greeter / Guards
