Selected video & exhibitions
At my October 2017 Signal Culture artist residency in Owego, NY I began to build a new body of experimental video work based around my tarot practice. This is work-in-progress and I am excited to see what is in the cards as this continues to take shape this year. Click on the thumbmail image to see the animated gif in action.
In 2016, the Baltimore Museum of Art awarded me the opportunity for a year-long collaborative installation, which became Queer Interiors/The Baltimore LGBTQI+ Home Movie Quilt (2016-17). It was an amazing and unique experience, and it was covered by Cara Ober for Hyperallergic and Kate Drabinski for the City Paper.
Highlights from my Vimeo channel
Oh Amelia (2017)
"Anticipation, I suppose, sometimes exceeds realization." - Amelia Earhart
From the early silents of Lubitsch to The Crying Game and beyond, gender-variant characters persistently provide cinematic shock upon the revelation of their "true sex." Turning the focus away from the gender-variant body, "Equal+Opposite" instead explores the range of physical and emotional reactions by "protagonists" to transgendered bodies, from curiosity to revulsion. Premiered at MIX21 Queer Experimental Film Festival, October 2008.
Communication breaks down in the wake of disaster. Based on “MS. Found in a Bottle” by Edgar Allan Poe. Commissioned for Baltimore Museum of Art Poe Anniversary exhibition, December 2009
