Hi everyone!

Huge, gushing THANK YOUS, hugs & kisses to each person who helped me get through my MFA study residencies last academic year - in NYC, Chance MD (in the USA) & my big Summer intensive residency in Berlin (in Europe) ... I really seriously literally could NOT have done any of it without your support - so you have no idea how grateful I am!

For those who need more background info - please refer to my previous campaign from last year:

NOW ... I am going into my second academic year.

To give a "refresher" - information wise ...
I am an MFA candidate with the Transart Institute:
a progressive, international arts organization that is accredited through Plymouth University in the UK to provide low residency MFA & PhD  programs in which students design their own course of study.

Last year, I developed a pedagogical method for teaching Performance Art:

This year, I am testing out my new method by becoming my own student & discovering the result when I follow my own method!

I have two totally stellar advisors to guide me.
Power-house women in the field of performance ...
My Studio Advisor is Linda Montano:
A vital force in the performance art world - especially in her ground-breaking work during the 70s & 80s.
& my Research Advisor is Laura Gonzales:

This years fundraiser is for BOOKS, GEAR & TRAVEL.
It only includes covering these costs for the work & research I'll be doing over the Autumn & Spring Semesters (& not for the Winter & Summer Residencies 2016)
It will cover books needed for reference research, gear needed for basic sound & video recordings & travel to a variety of locations where I will be doing field recordings & also to work with collaborators.

My campaign image serves to suggest that my project has the appeal of Marilyn Monroe & the brains of Albert Einstein!

As always ... "every little helps"

Thank you so much,

Books Gear & Travel campaign is now waking from a long slumber to receive funding for 2016!
Marilyn, Albert & I put our heads together to create an MFA thesis that's both glamorous & brilliant!
In order to achieve our mission, we need to research (books), record & edit (gear) & go places (travel) ......
Any amount, however large or small, will help send us on our way!

THANX to MYK for starting this off (all the way from New Zealand!)

You don't need to donate a fortune ..... the campaign accepts as little as $5 ... & every little helps!

& btw - in regards to my Monroe/Einstein reference .... it is reported that Marilyn actually had the higher IQ of the two of them!
