  • Take some time & watch this. It’s worth it, I promise.

  • 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 was afraid to repeat in the work, always. If you have to repeat something based on your own work, it becomes weaker. It’s a way of sort of sliding down. You should turn to something that’s new and never done before, even if you don’t succeed.

  • 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.
