Piece description from the artist
Born into one of the largest intentional communities in the U.S., The Farm, I grew up a spiritual communist within a capitalist country. It was a living experiment; what happens when 1600+ people create a community without government, without money, off of the grid, growing organic food, promoting natural childbirth and zen philosophies? These experiences inform who I am and the art that I make.
