Artist filmmaker who has screened/exhibited with Ann Arbor Film Festival, Chicago International Film Festival, Microscope Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), Wexner Center for the Arts (Columbus, OH), Transformer Station (Cleveland, OH), SPACES (Cleveland, OH), the Film-Makers' Cooperative (New York, NY), EMMEDIA Gallery & Production Society (Calgary, Alberta), Cranbrook Academy of Art (Bloomfield Hills, MI), and elsewhere. Invited in 2017 by the Cleveland Museum of Art to create a site-specific performance, installation and sound piece in collaboration with Henry Ross. The work, Death Knell, destroys a car as a live performance, using only hand tools, recording the sounds with dozens of contact microphones. The resulting audio composition was released as a double cassette by the Cleveland music label Unifactor Tapes.
Operating under umbrella ideas of destruction and survival, work includes transportation spectacles, rogue landscaping, shadow feminism, survivalist and self-help manuals, practical applications for theory, and canon revision of classic film. Developing a “tactical nostalgia” filmmaking technique—methodology for stripping sentimentality from investigations tied to memory—for use with an in-progress documentary on trauma and redemption narratives. Core participant in MINT, a decentralized collective and former warehouse space in Columbus, Ohio. Currently faculty in Graduate Studies at Columbus College of Art & Design and the Art Department of The Ohio State University. In 2019 will be in residence at Vermont Studio Center and The Growlery in San Francisco.
