About

'Cute As A Button' is an experimental animation that explores the cute aesthetic, a visual language that pervades our 21st century cultural experience. Everything has been sweetened for our palate, made to look innocent and non-threatening. Our information is candy coated, and easy to consume. This film seeks to unveil how the saccharine nature of consumer culture makes us sick and tired, yet perpetually addicted.

Destruction of Pleasure as a Radical Weapon

About

'Destruction of Pleasure As A Radical Weapon' is an experimental stop motion animation that features a life sized ceramic puppet. This animation is completed in an installation, in which the puppet is tied to the room with thread and is forced to watch itself in an endless loop. The installation is an audio/visual response to Laura Mulvey's seminal essay 'Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema'.

Luminous Landscape

Collaboration with Christopher David White for InLight Richmond 2014 hosted by 1708 Gallery. The installation contains 20 magnolia luminaries handcrafted from recycled paper, ceramic and lamp components. Awarded 'Most Environmentally Conscious' juried by Denise Markonish.
