Amanda Gang is weary of consumerism – appalled at the way her own parents are such avid shoppers.
She just wants out. so she is hoping to wander across the USA on a bicycle. She lives in Manhattan.
In this video, Amanda tells us she is looking for passionate and like minded people that feel her need to go living off the grid. She would like land, where she can just be and a community which will let her do what she likes to do and that is to get back to mother nature. This appeals to her and her friends.
She would like to attach herself to what her heart tells her where to be within a community that she relates with as gardening and building a home. She thought the art community was this but the four white walls and zero eye contact makes her think what her mind and heart tells her — that an alternative of living in contact with the earth is the answer.
Amanda is starting from scratch and she is surrounded by a cycle of destruction where her body yearns for nature. She has to learn from trial and error.
