One of the best things about being in the residency studio is the utter lack of distraction. I intentionally only bring what I am working on that day/week to the studio so that there is nothing to get in my way. This has allowed me to really consider my intentions for my work going forward.
This week, I focused a lot of my attention on planning projects for the next two years. I generally work about 18-24 months out from planning stages to finished piece. Now, after the new year, I can start editing the work I shot last spring, creating the sound/music and begin shooting for 2016.
I also created a mask for one of the costumes for a new video piece called, Can I Be You?, which I will shoot in the spring.
Looking at some older work...thinking about some new...
