I was honored to participate in a group installation, World Making, at NEW FRUIT in Portland this August, alongside so many rad women artists. I love New Fruit so much.
My work, TEMPORARY HOMES, an audio-driven installation based on interviews I've done with people living outdoors in Portland, Maine over about 7 years, was up and running. The first iteration of TEMPORARY HOMES was back in 2012 at the now-defunct DIRIGIMUS COLLECTIVE on Thompson's Point in Maine
Hey hey. Happy fall!
My frequent collaborator, Christoph Gelfand, and I created a new short documentary, GOOD NEWS, which we were so happy to screen at the documentary-centric Camden International Film Festival in mid-September. We had fun screening GOOD NEWS alongside other Maine-made films.
GOOD NEWS follows Edgar Gatto and his junk shop in the Bayside neighborhood of Portland, a place where homelessness, politics, religion, and gentrification play out every day. It captures Edgar's small corner of our city, before it's gone.
We loved working with Josh and Erik at Planet Nutshell, animator Marcin Z and local musicians Big Blood. Whew! Looking forward to the festivals.
