Video

Here are a few short videos that I’ve made as I experiement with Video Art. In these videos, I aim to quickly move the viewer through some deeper story. All of these videos are a look into something more about my own self- which is all I can seem to explore in art at this point.

This video features a small piano thought that I had stuck in my head for a few weeks. For this video, I spent several weeks filming and recording sound until I eventually sat down with it all and put together this story.

This video is likely still incomplete. I first came up with the bari sax part for this video and was humming it for days before I sat down to record. I think the video followed, and even weeks later I’m not sure they work together.

Nearly everyone who watched this video disliked it, but I think that’s the purpose of it. One of my good friends said it made their skin hurt. Honestly, it’s not one I was excited to show to anyone, but here it is nonetheless.

Blog

I am currently conducting an independent study on digital design and innovation in journalism and post my work on this blog. I also post reflections on artwork and media as well.

Me

Above all else, I value my relationships. I try my hardest to be a good friend, sibling, daughter, and a support for anyone who may need one. Second, I value creating. Whether I’m telling the stories of other people, my own story, or creating some sort of feeling, I think it’s important to be making things constantly. Third, I value collaborative creation and hard work. Without it, my work often becomes more self-serving than anything else.
