Guoda and Other Poems

Hello friends, with this post I am going to share with you a video I made during my residency in Lithuania this summer.  The title of the video is Guoda.  Ultimately, I'd like to exhibit this piece in a public space, or somewhere it can be lived with for a while.  I'm putting the video below, in it's entirety, as well as on my website, but I understand that staring at a screen for 25 minutes is not the best way for you to experience it.  Feel free to click through, or to let it roll until you have a sense of what I'm going for.

You may have figured out that the footage for Guoda was derived from a developing Impossible Project Polaroid.  Impossible Project is a lot of fun to play around with but it is also a VERY finicky film.  Once the video was complete, I used the leftover film to shoot portraits of folks I met this summer, and to document the Jewish Cemetery in Telc, CZ - the site of my East/West exhibition.  Here are some of those images.

Here's my perspective on the Jewish Cemetery in Telc, CZ.  I had the place to myself for a solid week so I tried to shoot one polaroid every day.

That's all for now.  If you don't know already, I will be a participant in the Fall Solos exhibition starting next month at the Arlington Art Center.  It will be the American debut of the East/West project.  The opening reception is October, 18th.  I would love to see you there!  For more info click here.
