The Pastel Project

This is a new project I am doing.  Everyday for one month I will paint, draw, touch, think about or say the name of a pastel colour.  I love these colours because they are so soft.

I love things that crunch in this way.  But Lisa why are you not camera ready in this video?  Audience, it is not always possible to be camera ready.

Reversing the Curse.  This is me getting ready for my performance at Doored 10.  It’s the Jubilee!  Here, I’m all like, “Please God.”

My performance at Doored 9.  It was titled, Stepping out of Cyberworld to Live Healing Hospital .  In this performance I stepped out of cyberworld for (almost) 5 minutes to treat people’s cuts and bruises.  Then I asked someone if they like me.  This is the kind of thing you are not supposed to ask people.
