ARTIST STATEMENT“It is a tragedie, exploring the possible inner lives of the objects around us and our unknown impact on them.”
I use this experimental video to consider different aspects of several materials. The point is to
look at the same substance from different angles: its visual properties (Part I), the associations
we make with it (Part II), and its use or behavior as a physical object (Part III)
It’s always interesting when an ordinary object brings to mind something fantastic or far away.
I combined a few of my favorite things (cherries, honey, flowers, and feathers) with live action,
stop-motion animation, still images, and sound to create this video, along with contributions from
some incredibly talented and generous friends.
If you like 90’s punk rock, bees, ice cream sundaes, understated acting, or drag queens, you’ll probably enjoy this piece.
Therefore, enjoy the experience of what you see in this Gothtober Day!
