The Light Shifts
Video Duet with@mormendel. I’ll call it ‘The Light Shifts’ On Friday’s after work, I would often go to Mor and Daniel’s place in Bedstuy...
Started during Covid-19 lock down in NYC, I made a year-long commitment to creating weekly videos. Initially, they were responses to my memory writing project, however, they morphed into current-day reflections and experimentations with narrative, embodiment and video and then back again.
In making these, I wasn't interested in "ART" or creating something complete, polished, entertaining, or even engaging. I was interested in the notion of creativity as a practice. What arose was a conversation between space, taking space (outside/inside); seeing, seeing differently; boredom and fear.
Underlying the philosophy of this process is a negotiation between thought/feeling/sense and material (body, environment, video, editing), and its DIY nature. Everything is done on the phone, and it is imperative to me to not think too much about it. As such, these videos are imperfect. I hope you enjoy them.
