MIDLIFE MAGIC or THE PRESENCE OF THAT WHICH IS NOT PRESENT

(2014-present) Through this series of short video rituals I seek to engage with and understand the range of strategies humans fabricate in order to connect with feelings of meaningfulness, mastery, and self-worth. Motivated by the various anxieties and indignities that I, and those around me, bump up against on a regular basis, these videos result in an odd combination of futility and agency, doubt and hope.

 

 


FOR THE PAIN OF SEPARATION


FOR THE PROTECTION OF YOUNG WOMEN


FOR NEEDLING SELF DOUBT, AND THE INDIGNITIES OF YOUR OFFICE JOB


FOR RECURRING PAIN, AND SUBSEQUENT FEAR


FOR ALL THE DEAD BABY BIRDS I KEEP SEEING ON MY WALK TO WORK, AND THE VULNERABILITY OF BEING A PARENT


FOR SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT


FOR MOVING ON, AT LAST


FOR LOVE, AFTER A DRY SPELL
