I’m currently working on four original new media projects – Scars, Walkers, Trees and KolorGirlz. I'm also collaborating with another artist on War Narratives.
Scars is about the violent marks people have in intimate places on their bodies and how those scars affect their psyche. Besides filming and editing the project, I'm designing a three-chambered multimedia (stills, projection and audio) gallery installation and a flash website.
Walkers utilizes HD to map immigrant and other subcultures throughout the USA. In addition to filming and editing the project, I’m designing an immersive, interactive multimedia installation for galleries and a video-embedded GPS website.
KolorGirlz is my feature documentary on outsider women comedians across the country. It features transgendered, lesbian, Korean, Persian and African-American professional standup comics. I’ve been working on it for several years and am now in post-production. KolorGirlz is fiscally sponsored by IFP/NY and was workshopped at the Latino Producer’s Academy in Santa Fe.
Trees is a multimedia (HD videofilm, audio surround sound, high resolution stills, geotagging) series on dead, decaying, or seasonally dormant linden, elm, maple, oak, beech and other trees in my neighborhood.
War Narratives is a series collaboration with Performance Artist Kathryn Howell. The character portrayed in this project is dealing with the realities of war. On the home front. In a there and then when women had fewer options than they do in the here and now.
