“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
- R. Buckminster Fuller

Gypsy Trader is a social practice art installation under the Nueva Utopia Post Apocalyptic Professions Project experimenting with alternative and sovereign business models. She is herself an alter ego created as the embodiment of the divine feminine, a healer, a shaman and a nurturer. She utilizes free online platforms to buy, sell and trade natural home goods, artesian delicacies, bulk goods packaged in glass jars, plant medicines, organic fruits and vegetables, art and non toxic alternatives for the home and body. She utilizes commerce to spark the conversation about consciousness by outlining our obsessions with consumerism while offering alternatives to our current options. She herself is the experiment to create the handbook of what a modern day trader looks like. She sells her wares in stores along her trader routes and wherever she resides. Currently you can find her most weeks at the Tinamaste Farmers Market in Costa Rica and in stores around Nosara, Costa Rica including Delicious del Mundo and Organico. You can find her on Instagram, and her Gypsy Dens in Costa Rica and Los Angeles on Airbnb.
