  • June 7 - 28, 2018
  • Opening: Thursday, June 7, 6:00 — 8:00 pm

The headquarters, also known as the G.U.T. (Grand Unified Theory of space-time) serves as a training program for humans to join F.I.B.E.R.’s intergalactic mission of fighting patriarchal conspiracies and constipation, while also supporting earth-bound, spirituality-building practices for matter and antimatter alike.

Eat more F.I.B.E.R.
You’ve probably heard it before, but do you know why F.I.B.E.R. is so good for your health?

Dietary F.I.B.E.R.—found mainly in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, organix music, information nuggets, witnessed/honored thoughts and emotions, mushroom pies, and legumes— is probably best known for its ability to prevent or relieve white patriarchal and capitalist constipation/conspiracies!

A high-F.I.B.E.R. diet has many benefits, which include the following:

  • Engaging one of many paths towards self-love and respect
  • Promoting a sense of belonging for all persons regardless of race, class, abilities, gender, etc.
  • Helping to honor the divine feminine
  • Reminding us that feminism does not exist for the sole comfort of white cis women
  • Laughing at the cosmos—soft belly and all
  • Aiding in the use of intersectionality as a research paradigm to implement theory into active, political practice that really works for positive change on our negative-thought-sickened planet
  • Investigating sound waves as gluten channels, as loving caresses, as beautiful souls, as powerful womxn, and as angry and compassionate strivers
  • Lowers cholesterol levels
  • Plus much more!

All earthbound beings are welcome at the F.I.B.E.R. training center to experience metaphors of metamorphosis, soft pink lounging opportunities, GIFs for attracting latent capacities into fuller ka-pow!, live art and music performances, untouchable vegan treats, vibrating nothingness, Coley eyebrows, donut slingshot practices, videos that crave volcanic/vulvanic virtues, etc.!!

Persons that undergo F.I.B.E.R. initiation and training will also be able to purchase a power staff at the F.I.B.E.R. gift shop.

The F.I.B.E.R. organization is proud to be of service to SYNKHRA, the goddess of music and pie. At F.I.B.E.R., we work hard to find the healthiest, best quality ingredients for all of our training sessions. Of all of the wholesome pitter-patters that we indulge to make everyone’s digestion easier, the one that we feel is most vital, is the only one that you won’t find squished or wiggled in the music videos: IS/LOVE/SOUND.


About the Artist

For cliff-hanging suspense and thrilling action, initiate yourself into the F.I.B.E.R. organization! The story opens with Coley Mixan (musician, artist, social justice activist, and library/STEAM educator) tending to their prize delphiniums when a mysterious carrier hawk lands in their yard. Attached to the multi-plumed avian’s leg is a secret recipe for apple pie and the deconstruction of the patriarchal glaze that drips across intersectional pastries. Following a series of clues, hunches, and down-right queer shenanigans, Coley and the F.I.B.E.R. crew gather evidence against a clever ring of art thieves, patriarchs, and monopolists to bring down the chaotic diaspora of capitalism. In the long, climactic sequence of the plot, Coley hides behind a statue and uses their voice to make the statue appear to speak to the con-con men. Coley is also captured and tied up, and as they confront the miscreants, the rhythm of disco and queer-funk sizzle into the Earth, necessitating another dramatic rescue.
