The genesis of this piece came from the transactional nature of the relationships I was involved in at the time either platonic or romantic. These interactions drained me. One night I dreamed a syrupy sweet red liquid was flowing from my mouth. My own thoughts on relationships were saccharine at that age. The dream became “Anyone Would be Thrilled to Have Me Obsess Over Them” a durational performance piece in which the first jar is emptied into the last by my holding the liquid in my mouth and dripping it into the jar next to the one proceeding it. The process is repeated until I get to the last jar which is barely full after all the transfers from jar to jar much on the same way that the excitement you feel from new relationships be them intimate or friendly loses its purity and innocence after a couple of heartbreaks and letdowns.
