I want you to see into this. I want you to ask me questions. I want this to make you come with me. Talk to me or email me at

Hi everyone, I’m Lorene Bouboushian. I made this in an attempt to synthesize and deepen multiple explorations inspired by Jill Sigman, Daria Faïn, and luciana achugar, and supported by numerous wonderful friends, teachers and witnesses, including David Parker, Tessa Chandler, Sophie Schapiro, Kate Ryan, Kirsten Schnittker, Juliana May, and countless others. Thank you all for goading me on toward whatever this can be. What I am doing here means a lot to me; it has as many layers for me as I hope it has for you. So tell me how you feel. More about me: I want to find some sense of community in this city through discussion and action galvanized by open forums and commons. I long for my home, Texas, and its big open skies, but something about the mad, intense, glorious people here make it worth it. I hope to be as curious and earnest as I can.
