Beginning on April 26th, 2018 Adams launched Massage-Generated Energy Drawings; a continuation of her exploration and expansion of positive energy and healing touch as artistic mediums. It was a large-scale collaboration with 80 other artists that ran for twenty days straight at the Porch Gallery Ojai, through May 15th, 2018. Each day Adams performed four, hour-long massages on participating artist-collaborators. During each massage, a bell steward would randomly ring a bell three times. At the sound of the bell, the massage recipient was asked to immediately vocalize the first word that came to his/her mind. The bell steward kept a log of the three words collected during each session.
After completing the massages, Adams worked late into the evening compiling the 12 words and incorporating them into a drawing. In the spirit of Dada-esque poetry, the aim was to create a series of drawings that reflected the essence of the collaboration/positive energy exchange between Adams and the artists who received her massages.
At the end of the 20-day period, twenty drawings had been completed and hung around the same gallery space. The drawings represented the enormous communal quality and the collaborative energy of the entire project.
