On Starship Earth they call me Leyla Daze. I’m a tiger-gendered wanderer, my work lives in the spirits under the loam in the deep mossy forest. I search the trailless places, walking where I am called. I stare wide-eyed at the tiny details and find faces in the branches. The forest is my research, then I return home to make sense of a human-shaped world.

i/me/you\\we are infinitely unique together, community projection pyramid. 2017

I'm crafting songs and stories, melting synth~plastic with crushed bytes that sound ancient again. The songs are sculptures at the outer edges of our historical timeline: they pull from the far-past and become divining rods for the future.

I take my job seriously even when capitalism doesn’t. As the veils of our world are lifted, it's so important that artists craft a new place to live in. As I spend more continuous hours in a trance with the dark places, gluing objects together, making dances, arranging sounds into harmony, I am less employable for someone else’s vision.

If my body didn’t need to eat or sleep I’d make art all the time. I build installation art by day, play music by night, and when the muse still won’t let me sleep I write ideas ferociously.
As Bjork put it:
‘I’m not stopping. I’m going hunting. I’ll bring back the goods.’

As Bjork didn’t put it:
‘I’m not stopping. I’m still working. Did I eat lunch today? Do I have enough rent money?’

Most of us do this work for free, alongside the astronomical hustle of meeting our needs. And I still would-- but I’m ready to jump in for real. Your support creates a cushion, a peace of mind, and epic permission. For the past three years it’s been a transition from worker-artist to artist-artist, and I’m closer than ever! This is the hurdle stage-- where the resources needed to jumpstart my career are out of balance with spending hours at a day job. Your support ($1 is just as meaningful as $100) launches me past that hurdle and into my soul’s work.

I look toward Laurie Anderson, Grimes, Michael Jackson, Mike Kelley, Yayoi Kusama, Animal Collective, and dangle on the void's edge-- pushing the work toward the far future. My practice combines song, dance, installation, and video in an ever-shifting variety of output formats. Like these artists I feel that medium is not the focus. I pull from the void the stories of my soul, making them seen, heard, and felt through the most available means. The stories are weird and wild. They surprise me. They’re ready for the stage~ and they hunger for the gift of Time.
