the right livelihood


if i were to do a phd

it would be to contribute to a marginalized, undernoticed, understated discourse

it would be the bridging of quiet rustles in a yoga studio and the lime light at the Academy Award

photo-taking as an extension of the body

Talked to Ine and spoke about my involvement (or the lack of) with taking photos in Iceland.

I wanted to see with my eyes and I wanted to speak with a sculpture...

I made a rule for myself to not take photos or write. Even asked my friend to bring back the analog camera I carried with me.

I broke the rule during my trek. It felt necessary to take the photos.

"It's saying I am here. I am present," Ine said, "do you feel what you see online are the same as the photos you took yourself?"

"No. I took them after hiking up a mountain. There was rain, wind. I was isolated. I was cold. The moment makes it different."

"It's an energy... When you see these snapshots from others it's as if something has been ripped from you."

one thought

The more I make film, the less I care about art [exhibited with a lot of wall text].

what is your purpose

my emotional register as a filmmaker

grammar is related to purpose - there is no inherent right or wrong

film poem

defining purpose makes editing easier




taking control is okay

repeat, taking control is okay

just because you are good at something doesn't mean you shouldn't do it...


What is in an image? Does the image conduct my intention?

Gee, if my intention is blurry...

If I become aware and articulate all the decision-making in the making of an image...

I feel exhausted.

This thing about moving image is...

I have a ton of footage. I want to be precise. I am not always motivated to edit...


For a few years I drew rectangles.

Everything happens within the bounds.

In the beginning, screens are flattened, senitized surfaces.


Projections are light without a screen.

The screen catches.

What is the materiality of light... Memory image.

Cameras are portable.

I like to be centered when everything else moves.

I do not like moving much, to be honest.

I enjoy moments when things are quiet, when I am quiet.

I enjoy being quiet.


The hierarchy of images is not dependent on the way they are produced, it comes from within. I have distrusted that within, but I will change now.

I am precious with this image and will not show it until it is done. Test the boundaries.
