His works challenge conventional representations of collective identity. Beginning with the question, “What would happen if Sun Ra, George Washington Carver and Robert Smithson started a community together in the desert?” New Growth's playful scrutiny intertwines cosmology and escapism in an attempt to blur the lines separating past, present and future.

Despite her rare beauty, she is helpless when it comes to the mundane chores of everyday life. In an attempt to defend his daughter’s uselessness, the Miller makes the mistake of falsely proclaiming that his daughter can spin straw into gold. Meanwhile, the Kingdom is in a predicament when the King suddenly dies leaving the young prince to inherit the throne. As the years progress, the wealth of the kingdom is squandered on frivolous expenses, and the young prince quickly turned king, finds himself at odds with his subjects. All that remains in the treasure rooms of the palace are piles upon piles of straw. The King, in dire need of wealth, seeks the assistance of the Miller’s daughter. He believes her to be capable of returning him to his affluent state by turning his piles of straw into gold. The story concludes with the characters facing life-altering decisions, broken promises, and an array of mysterious events. Themes include the power of friendship, the destructive nature of vanity and greed, and the value of forgiveness.
