Love Prescriptions
Love Prescriptions
I have completed a year of performing Love Prescriptions on the 14th day of each month from February 14th, 2014 until February 14th, 2015. This performance has been a way for me to play "Cupid" and share the wonderful unexpected moments of intimacy in conversations between strangers about Love.

I began doing love prescriptions because every time I say my given name – Cupid – the majority of folks ask me for love advice. This inspired me to embody “Cupid” as a character who resembles a 20th century therapist like Sigmund Freud. As a method of this character, I use Freud’s technique of “free association” to encourage a participant to talk freely about any aspect of their love lives, passions and dreams. In return I write a Love Prescription based on our conversation on die cut hearts with India ink. This prescription can take many forms, including an insight the participant has unknowingly revealed to me or a task that the participant should do based on what they have told me.
