~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In Yokohama, Home Depot is called Sekichu. Selling sheets of wood and plexiglass, it’s your responsibility to make your own surfaces – tables, temples, places to eat, places to pray; those decisions are left to you.

Habitual Present at 8-11 is another chapter in a continuing, untitled narrative that has taken the form of comics, sculpture, performance, and watching Paramore videos from a mattress on the floor. Situated between an habitual, relentless somatic viscerality and a semi-fictional auto-biography is the desire to embody both, to be present somewhere, and for that to be okay.

+Text by Walter Kaheróton Scott and Danielle St-Amour
