Statement

My practice is based in historical research and reclamation through fiction. I utilize old technologies; super 8 and 16mm film, letter writing, optical printing and hand-processing, to resuscitate materials I do not believe are dead. The same goes for the historical and personal revivals throughout my project. I am interested in women's writing and american radical political movements. I am studying French to further my research into the Parisian circle of poets, artists and modernist writers in Natalie Barney's Académie des Femmes. I approach historical subjects as an arena for experimentation, irreverently and willfully polluting the accepted canon. Simultaneously, I revive and revise in order to craft a new a lesbian syntax for my own time.
