I’ve been back in New York for the past couple weeks & it’s the longest I have been here, since I lived here in late 2009. So many memories & thoughts have been circling back. I did a studio program the first semester of my junior year of college, because I needed something new, a different direction. I had started reading a lot about perfromance art & it’s relation to photography & video & have actually been rereading some of the articles I found around that time. I’ve been thinking about my work & life as the work & my role as a photographer in that.
This video was one piece that was made during the fall of 2009. There’s a lot of conceptual basis to it, that I’m not entirely sure is necessary to know. It was one of the first times I had really planned out a project before I even started making it.
I will admit, patience is a bit of a key to this work, stick around for the whole video.
I just put up a huge selection of work from my summer travels/ current work in progress titled “West Of The Sun.” Take a look, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
We were just outside of Gary, IN when while I was driving, the engine started fucking up. We found a garage & there was a failed piston in the engine. While Raf quietly freaked out, Jessie, Billy, & I deliriously laughed & chugged coffee. We abandoned the car at the garage & got drunk at the train station at 9am & then fell asleep on the train into Chicago.
Harmony & I met at Coney Island almost 5 years ago & have only seen each other about once a year since. She recently moved from Florida to New York.
