OBJECT COLLECTION presents LOOK OUT SHITHEAD VOLUME 2:
Look Out Shithead is a love story inspired by the films of Éric Rohmer.
Episode 2: a long night after the daylight fades.
Plots thicken, a rendezvous between the powerful at an underground club, a terrible wound,
spells are cast, the clowns congregate.
Let’s talk about love, again, again, again and again.
This is a preview of Episode 2, which will stream-premiere with The Brick soon. Episode 1
premiered this January at The Exponential Festival. A future episode will be live onstage at La
MaMa as part of the 2021-2022 season.

-A video commissioned by A. Sarr and Tiff Ortiz. The song is titled Same Hear. For this video, I decided to make a “video painting” — as in what if paintings could move?

ADMIRAL GREY presents READING SNAKE DREAMS I FOUND ON THE INTERNET
A little while ago, I found a “visual dictionary” CD-rom at a thrift shop in Johnson, VT. When I put it in the computer, the only thing I could access was a 5-hour audio clip of a random assortment of words. VISUAL DICTIONARY is my first attempt to rebuild the visuals. Maybe it will become a 5-hour art piece. Maybe it will become a short film with an emerging narrative. Maybe it will become a collaboration with other artists. Maybe you will be the only people who will ever see it?
