map of the world, i've been, you're from, dreams in jasmine air....is the short poem that opens the installation Café Kiss of the World. The best part was being able to incorporate all my creative impulses into one body of work. I had long thought that some things were too personal, or not 'art world' enough, but maybe it's age, now it just seems that the only way to sustain my practice is to stop compartmentalizing my creative interests, and bring it all together. And lo and behold, it was a lot of work and super fulfilling!
