A short film is about experiencing the city of Rome alone at night. Visiting the Roman Forum alone at night was a strange and novel viewing experience. The light source originates at the bottom of the structures resulting in a cold inverse of the warm daytime sunlight. This method of lighting unexpectedly exposes areas that lay in shadow during the day revealing jagged and dramatic versions of the familiar forms. This technique is the same effect a storyteller achieves while holding a flashlight under their chin before sharing a scary story.

Three Comedies


This is one video from a series of “comedies,” made using footage from Florence, Italy combined with green screen effects taken from YouTube. Historical sites are obscured by cheap “special effects” to create a narrative inspired by conventions of vaudeville and early cartoons.

Educational Programing

This piece is a video collage of imagery taken from YouTube channels aimed at educating children. The videos follow the simple formation of the following elements: colors, animals, multiples and repeated actions. I have combined these concepts with low budget green screen special effects to an a sinister twist to imagery that is already ambiguously devious. I am inspired by Dada and collage elements, these pieces are the result of chance and an over-saturation of media posing as 'education.'

Artificial Intelligence Gas Pump



This series of videos were made using a “Talking Pet” app while putting gas in my car. The sounds are advertisements playing from the speakers above the gas pump.  The presence of video and audio advisements playing from the gas pump is both entertaining and strange.  I am inspired by the many talking machines represented in through science fiction television and film.

The artist unboxes a series of items that are not the traditionally subjects of typical "unboxing videos." Each item only receives one minute of attention. A majority of unboxing videos tend to drag on forever as each detail is commented on. This is the artist commenting on limited attention spans, but also respecting the viewer's time.

Dank Memes



I made this video for an exhibition called Dank Memes

at Non-Fiction Gallery, in Savanah, GA.  

"Put simply, memes are cultural viruses; they’re ideas spread throughout our collective consciousness with a speed we can scarcely observe. As memes mutate & shift — seeding & replicating in the minds of ever-growing numbers of people — their popularity & trending lifespan become signposts which define broader cultural moments. Dig deep and decode the cultural viruses that live in you: show us your dank memes." –from

VR 2016



This video is a compilation of individual 15 second videos.  I was 1 year old when the film Tron was released, and 11 when the movie Lawnmower Man hit theaters.  I have never known a time without pop culture representations of a “Virtual Reality.”  As a child I wanted to experience VR, now as an adult I actually can.  When making these videos I embrace an esthetic established by popular representations of VR to simulate mundane experiences.

GrEyEmpire is a collaboration with Seattle based musician

Peter C Murray (Jean Chalant, Poor Moon, The Christmas Cards).  The motivation for GrEyEmpire emerged while discussing ideas about the history of different civili­­zations and the knowledge and ideas that disappear when a civilization ends. This video meditates on the transfer of knowledge through symbols, technology, architecture and sound. 


Peter Murray and John O’Donnell have created and exhibited a variety of sound and image based collaborative projects over the last decade, but this is the first to be exhibited in Seattle.

Beefy Cheese Glory 



Addressing different was in which visual culture and advertising invades daily life and ultimately haunts consumers through misrepresentation and repetition.  There is also something playfully poetic about a hamburger emerging from a billboard only to fade away.

Studio Proof



Studio Proof is made video by collaging vacation footage from Yellowstone National Park, video form Youtube and different video studies intended to look at nostalgia, gender and corporeality.  Formally the piece is inspired by the minimal grid based aesthetic of a film by Hollis Frampton called Snowblind. Made in 1968, and the pixilated imagery and sound of Gary Hill’s piece from 1978, Electronic Linguistics.  Musical score by musician Peter Murray.

Batmaster of Puppets

This piece refers to masculine adolescent American icons, and the overt and confounding ways in which young men attempt to define their identities through categories and icons presented in the media.

Food Cart



Video of food delivery trucks collaged with still images of the food items they transport. Suggesting the surreal idea that these food items could assemble to make their own vehicle.  This piece is also about the ubiquity and velocity of images intended to tantalize the senses.

Quick Remix



A familiar television commercial from the 80’s usually aired Saturdays mornings remixed with overtly sexual imagery involving a chocolate fetish.  In a sense I am updating media from my past, edited to reflect contemporary standards of media and sexuality.
