This section features some shorter term projects which were produced concurrently with the longer projects featured on the main project page. These works contain concepts and visual forms I hope to return to in future works.
Proposal For A New Trans Flag ( 2020 )
Sample Loop of Proposal For A New Trans Flag, 2020
The piece in the Processing Community Catalog 2021:
Read ( 2018 )
Installation View of Read, 2018
A video scans the contours of my body. The video is projected and doubled in space using a two-way mirror commonly used for surveillance and privacy purposes. Installed, the mirror has the effect of both doubling the surveillance of my body and negating its ability to provide privacy to the viewer.
The Best Transwoman ( 2018 )
Installation View of The Best Trans Woman, 2018
Focusing on the throat as a charged sight of violence, desire, and
gendered identification, this piece draws one into a scene of
pressure. By inverting the standard optical mode, as one recedes from
the device the image is magnified, one's sense of closeness to the
body in question is disrupted.
The phrase “The best transwoman is an invisible one.” is repeated throughout the video as my throat is variably caressed and choked.
Trans Effigy 2016 ( 2017 )
Seal Designs for Trans Effigy 2016, 2017
Trans Effigy 2016 used the design form of an official seal to mark each documented case of a trans person being murdered in the U.S.A. in 2016. These designs were used to manufacture wax stamp tools, glass stamp tools and printing plates. These tools were used in the creation of wax seal prints, glass seal facsimiles, and a series of 60 letterpress printed and handbound artist books as well as being displayed as works in their own right. The artist books were porduced as part of the CSArt Madison 2017 program organzied by Art Lit Lab.
