Artist Statement

My work engages digital and analog motion picture technologies to explore narrative and compositional interests through time and motion.  I am specifically curious about how shapes in motion construct space, reveal events and interact with one another.  Using self-portraiture as a starting point, I combine narrative and documentary techniques with letter writing, travel documentary and visual experimentation to create composited works of motion picture art.

Devastated by how filmed images structure memory, fold space and obliterate competing ideas, I stage confrontations between filmed images and animated elements to see what I cannot otherwise imagine and explore issues of gender, intimacy, privacy and sexuality.
