New work. Beginning of art piece. Mostly just how it all looks to me.

Selfie which I consider more accurate as perception.

I know this is gritty. I know it may seem sexual. It may seem that way because I am a woman.

I do not show you my chest. I know the conclusion. It is biased, especially with images.

This is a self in a forced submission unable to speak.

It’s not about the news today. It’s about how the news is played today. How we are all played today and no doubt tomorrow. My opinion, of course.

Digitizing some old work.
 
This one I did a long time ago when the vodka commercials for brand "Absolut" were created by famous artists.
 
This is my version as an individual who has studied science and the ethics of science.

This is selling a drug and making the drug "cool." It's not okay. 

I am not suggesting prohibition but rather some ethical consideration.

Cover of my first art piece, 1992, titled, the Scream/Hard Sell. It is an art "book," The topic is feminism, sex and the 20th Century. 

Recently I discovered that this piece has had two shows at the Modern Museum of Art in New York. I did not know it!

It crossed over into to literature. It is archived at the Avant Writing Collection, Ohio State University Library, Rare Books: created to collect and archive the most "innovative writing," "internationally," for the future, for scholars and research. I did not know this either. 

I am using quotes and providing the links below which point directly to source. I am doing that because the honor bestowed is too much for me to manage emotionally. I am still in a state of disbelief.

Three images used to make animation. Here, it's me. I am trying to exit a rectangle or similar.

Repost. In case there exists one who cares, I had to delete all twice because of problems being public. 

Hope that is over. Trying again.

Also and most importantly, I do not have those "love-handles" anymore. k

My visual poetry book, Top Model, I am proud to discover is included in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art, NY, NY.

Thank you so very much to those who have supported such a strange endeavor in art and poetry. I plan to put two books online in video format because of such a thoughtful reception.

Sensitivity, lost. This is my visual perspective of how disconnected we have become from feeling true love and sorrow. To me, it is all noise. It's only getting louder.
