Basis of Improvement is a solo show by Whit Forrester. Gold is the substance used to represent the substance of the Divine: light. It is also wealth and power, a product of the colonial atrocity and contemporary self care. Plants are unique, able to take the holy manifestation and transform it into themselves while still holding this his. In this moment they bridge multiple worlds: arbiter of the divine, access point to materialism and nexus of personal and world histories.
