from The Film Stills
The intention behind The Film Stills series is to collect visual moments from films that resonated with me in a personally powerful way.

I freeze and often re-frame these moments, in an attempt to isolate and better understand their personally-captivating quality. Whether beautiful, haunting and/or absurd, they are all images that I felt compelled to pause upon.

The Film Stills is an ongoing project.

Spotlight was created in response to an open call for video art addressing the theme of "Spotlight."

My first association with the notion of spotlight was: an intensity of looking, searching, or seeking of something. This led to my linking together two of the tools that I frequently employ as a video artist, in my own process of looking/searching/seeking — a TV and a digital video camera.

It starts with nothing. The room is black. The camera is trained on the television monitor, which is wired to display whatever information the camera is seeing. In essence, the camera is looking at nothing — and it is also an integral part of the loop of that very nothingness. It is visual video feedback, feeding and seeking something within a vacuous digital crescendo. Through the very process of looking--and having been looked at--so closely, something begins to emerge: patterns, rhythms. Eventually, from within the insistence of looking, the nothing becomes something.

What do you do when your live-in lover of moves out suddenly--leaving not an explanation, but a can of soup?

You eat it.

The Vertical Love Chronologies document the tension between a "feminine" expression and its "masculine" perception.

Exploring the relationship between the roles of being artist, analyst, and subject, I(the artist) take(s) on the task of exposing the limits of being understood, and of understanding — by taking both an irrational("feminine") and an analytical linear-thinking("masculine") approach to a situation.
