Anonymous was a Vlog is an episodic YouTube project centered around the everywoman persona of a woman artist at mid-life, who through a cam-girl dialogue of fast-paced and finely-tuned jump cuts, discusses situations, both personal and universal. I began recording the series during the summer of 2018 in the middle of a prolonged period of record-breaking temperatures in the Mojave Desert. The micro-essays reference language and communication, politics, climate change, career, finances, etc. while functioning as a representational presence for a demographic marginalized by mainstream media.
Performative videos and documentation of situations.
Micro-films reflecting a range of themes from the personal is political, to impermanence and the observation of transcendental moments in the everyday. Instability of our prevailing political climate (2016- present) and the ensuing anxiety is a subtext in much of the recent work.
Recent experimental documentary and micro-cinema focusing on conversations with contemporary female artists and those involved with cultural spaces in the South and beyond. The videos are an extension of my practice as an artist and came about while re-evaluating my relationship to the studio as the main site of production.
