Some Kind of Grace: An Interview with Miranda July

by Julia Bryan-Wilson and Miranda July

Camera Obscura, 2004, v. 19, no. 1, pp. 180-197

Interview with Miranda July preceded by an introduction to her artistic process and background. July "[uses] her body, voice, sound and video effects" to make the familiar foreign and unearth the "monsters" that "speak our deepest fears or embody our most extreme fantasies." Writing is the basis for most of her work and her use of technology is "only at the service [...] of a feeling."
