Desire Miser in Repose

A haunted pleasure den of material excess. A storage pod for displaced desires. A pagan speak-easy. A topography made up of pedestrian materials like free-piled holiday decorations and toys, orphaned formalwear, retired furniture, and mass-produced disposable novelty embellishments layered and entangling in a sickeningly joyous mound. Here, an anemic OCD-afflicted spinster (the Desire Miser) sits and waits for the world to offer her something.
