Grant Summary
Support for ongoing work.
Artist Statement
My practice works with and against the conventions of documentary and narrative filmmaking to examine the complex yet mutable stuff by which we weave the stories that become our personal and social mythologies. I resituate filmic structures as installation, looped video, and live performance to ask the viewer to look between frames for the mortar that holds a story together. I frequently work on projects that investigate the meeting of personal narrative with issues of social importance, like my family history near atomic testing zones in Nevada or my youth spent working at the largest mall in America.
