Blue is for water, cold, refreshing, still.

Purple is for air, clouds, birds on window sills. 

Yellow is for flowers, sunlight, trees, and earth. 

Red is for fire, metal, flames, rebirth.

Technology fails on a voyage to Italy as a broken point & shoot camera warps and transforms images of Venetian canals, a train ride to Florence, and the ancient ruins of Rome. Soundtrack composed by Gabriel Guma.

2005, 3-5 min, Super 8, live sound.

Super 8 found-footage film of the needle of a sewing machine blown up to 16 mm, hand-sewn, re-photographed back to Super 8, and hand-processed. The image of a pulsating needle as the thread punctures through the surface of the film strip, while the sound of a stylus needle scratches the surface of a rotating record player.  

WASTE

2005, 3 min, Super 8, silent.

Shot in glorious Kodachrome, WASTE delights in the discarded.  Littered throughout the city streets, these candy wrappers, fast food containers, and coffee cups invade the screen as Ronald McDonald and the Starbucks mermaid vie for the spotlight.
