Emigrant (Work in Progress)

I was born in a small town in Rural Kentucky, but my family moved us all back to California when I was one. I’ve always wondered what my life would have looked like had we not moved. What happens when a variable in life changes? Emigrant explores ideas around youth, masculinity, identity, and plays with slippage between fiction and nonfiction, parallel histories, and narrative.

A Private Performance in Public in Infinite and Parallel Acts is a series of self portraits sourced from strangers Instagram accounts when we have shared space and time together. Thats the short description, the long version has lots of ideas to unpack around performance, privacy, “the crowd,” and artist/subject/viewer relationship. The project is very much ongoing.
