Blending In, 2004 (ongoing), 4:20.
Blending In is an examination of public performance. Often searching for connectedness and interaction, I pose in front of buildings that match my clothing, attempting to become an invisible spectacle.

One Hour of Excitement, 2006, 2:00.
For this endurance piece, exclamation marks are drawn for one full hour. The screen is filled, ironically fulfilling the title with a subtle nod to Jon Baldessari. The excitement is sped up, becoming a two-minute video document. It also exists as a real time one hour installation.

Wet T-shirt Contest, 2006, 1:00.
Up against myself, I decide to have a wet t-shirt contest that violates expectations.

Strength Tests, 2006, 4:35.
Tired of failure, I’ve decided I am going to win. This video is an experiment of the way the camera shapes what is viewed. The simple site gags are not only tests of strength and the strength of editing, but also of the everyday objects used to carry out each task.

The Contest, 2004, 2:45.
Playing with the properties of the camera, I have a staring contest I am sure to loose and determined to win.

Note: Titles available to screen separately.
