Welcome to Edition XIII of The Brown Pages! I gotta be honest, I've been luxirating in my retirement with a study (read as binge-watching) of The Real Housewives of Orange County. 13 seasons.  ranging 12 years back. lorde it is a study in fashion, white priviledge, friendship, the economoy, plastic, gossip, the patriachy and SO much more. i don't recommend it. tho, it has made for a deepened research process as i re-imagine an old work that explores american economy. (we'll get into that shortly)

when i'm not completely submerged in the lives of these housewives, i've been enjoying my time in the classrom at Vaudezilla, dreaming and shifting into my year as a CDF 2018 Lab artist and enjoying summer time chi. 

I'm trying my darnest to carve a new path, outside of social media, that connects me to you.  I appreciate ya'll being here

and hope as always you enjoy The Brown Pages.

we are a country of productivity. technology. decaying malls. echo chambers. 

i've been revisiting an old act after finding new inspiration from a now old kanye west moment that involved a hat, twitter, and a weird TMZ outburst. July 3rd i brought my new creation that I am calling Trump n Ye's Power to California Clipper for "It's a Grand Old Drag!" Reflections, qoutes from both Kanye West & King Crimson and inspirations below including beautiful shots from the show from Greg Inda!

in Trump n Ye's Power I utlize monopoly money as a symbol of american capitialism and greed. unknowingly this was the original intent of Monopoly. Created by artist, Lizzie Magie in 1904. Monopoly was first named The Landlord and was intended to "demonstrate the evils of accruing vast sums of wealth at the expense of others." She was quoted in 1906 as saying, “In a short time, I hope a very short time, men and women will discover that they are poor because Carnegie and Rockefeller, maybe, have more than they know what to do with.”
