Spring 2020
After years away from film as a regular artistic practice, I developed “What’s Your Hurry, Baby?” Compiled through long takes, this piece is also negotiate in nature, revolving around in/voluntary surveillance.

This short film was the term project for the course “Exploring Spiritualities through Movement”, instructed by Dr. Michelle Summers at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, CA.

Fall 2020
Inspired by Patricia Leavy’s work, Method Meets Art, I created this cross-disciplinary installation while revisiting  sadism and masochism as spiritual practices.

Here, ecstatic expression - in the form of freewrites - and traditional academic inquiry clash, resulting in a visceral,  vulnerable work that breaches categories. I reveal the complex erotic subconcious that fuels my creativity.

Spring 2017
Interpreting the relationship between Yeshua and Judas as one of co-conspiring between intimate lovers, I originally wrote “Judas: The Beloved” as a spoken word piece.

However, upon meeting the talented dancer and multi-disciplinary artist, M Wu,
Judas expanded to include concurrent movement and recitation. This piece explores pleasure, pain, rupture, and betrayal as products of occasionally failed attempts at communication.

Fall 2017
Encountering translation and transformation as physical processes, this piece revolves around the act of preparing oneself to receive their Beloved.

Advocating for queer pleasure as a site + sight of negotiation and resistance is the goal of this piece.

Through screenprinting and natural fabric dyes, I made a wearable garment whose hue I reclaim from its use in Germany’s Third Reich.

A Black, Disabled, queer, transgender Jew and ally for Palestinian Liberation, I acknowledge that the names of dissidents were once printed and distributed on pink paper, I consider myself part of that tradition of counter-culture and resistance.
