8$ is a series which occasionally highlights interesting crowdfunding projects. Every day, the 8Asians team is inundated by many worthy pitches. We are unable to highlight every one that comes our way, or even the ones we might individually support. The projects selected for 8$ are not endorsements by 8Asians. (To be considered for 8$, we highly suggest you not harass the writers or the editors of 8Asians.)
WHO: Kristina Wong, performance artist and comedian who has been publicly professing her love for Jeremy Lin for the last two years.
WHAT: Kickstarter project: I WILL MARRY JEREMY LIN.
For the last two years I have been publicly vying for the attention of NBA Superstar Jeremy Lin so that I can get married and have babies already. It’s been something of a durational performance project where my anxieties as a childless woman approaching the last of her childbearing years play out as a public spectacle that subverts gendered approaches of courtship and the otherwise emasculated media images of Asian men.
WHEN: Deadline to contribute is Friday, August 22, 2014 (1:31pm PDT).
With your Kickstarter support, I will be able to purchase 2 Court Side tickets at $2700 a piece for one Lakers game this season. I will be escorted by a Maid of Honor (person of any gender, TBD) who will keep an eye on my dress and on security. I will follow and adhere to all rules of conduct in the Staples Center as I will Jeremy to notice me.
I will keep detailed documentation in my blog and Instagram for my audience to follow.
