I am currently reading the Subject of Semiotics by Kaja Silverman. For my studio work, I am trying to pick apart my boundaries. I want to shine a light on the darkest parts of my personality. It’s not hard. My cognitive process can go to a dark place easily. Silverman writes about the problems between what we are thinking and how we express that in language. Through visual language, I share the emotion involved in picking apart these dark shadows in my studio process.
Full circle, I am making a short as my studio project this semester. I never, ever thought I would return to filmmaking after leaving New York. But here I sit piecing together a storyboard in Final Cut Pro. I’ve spent hours splicing and dicing audio tracks, and I LOVE every minute of it.
I am looking forward to sharing something besides still life this winter.
Thank you so much for following my art journey.
