Sovereign Intimacies II

I’ve been working with a local gallery, the Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art, documenting and recording their current show. The end result, a short document that will be used for online platforms and in a University setting to explore the themes and complexity of the installation.

We are in the final lap, video has been recorded and now we have to finish our audio on December 4th.

The process has been different to navigate with Covid-19. I’m so used to just jumping in, but this has required a whole new style of creative navigation. Here are some screenshots from the final cut. It’s just so nice to look at and gives me all the warm feelings of creative satisfaction.

Hometown Fever Dream II

More work based around mirroring and inverting images. This work represents a struggle with dissociation, and the push and pull of rural and cultural identity. All of these shots are stills from a longer video piece entitled “Hometown Fever Dream”

Excerpt from a longer piece that builds on the thematic play of dissociation, recovery and cultural identity.

*2 years ago I recorded the alarm system going off in a parkade. It was eerie, foreboding and I loved it. I held onto that sample and was FINALLY able to use it…so satisfying to rediscover audio and find a proper home for it*

Arlington Bridge

Sometimes all it takes is seeing something from a different perspective to understand it’s creative potential. This was was so relaxing to film and cut together. The longer edit includes driving through residential streets and through our downtown area, once I finish it up I will post it.

Kaleidiscope

Slow Sunday here today, spent some time reviewing and editing footage, creating short pieces that carry the hazy recollection of memories.  The feeling when you try and recall a moment and all you can find are the shapes and sounds of where you used to be.
