Own This
Digital Video, 2011-2013

Own This is part of a performative video project depicting a series of abstracted spatial character vignettes that incorporate video, costume, music, and dance. Each segment is the study of a shape or form that obscures, restricts or otherwise defines the body and the inter-relationship of its aural, emotive, and environmental components. Own This is a vignette featuring a floor-length fringed orange hat that’s reminiscent of a jellyfish; its swishing movements grace a menacing obstacle course of household objects. The challenge that each character faces is played out on the screen and on the stage, in a minimal theatrical set that emphasizes the multi-place-ness and multi-space-ness in which we are located.

Own This was originally a modular performative project that included 2 video channels. It was also the title of a performance that took place at SOHO20 Gallery in NYC in which this piece was featured.
