10th Lesson
3.9 – 3.18.2009

A film within a video that uses bad timing to draw out a classic joke, this work highlights how language lessons teach you more than proper pronunciation. The motif of the circle, the wheel, and the spiral conspire to confuse and befuddle. Made in collaboration with sound artist Will Redman.

3.19 – 3.31.2009

16mm experimental film about the ideal and the embodiment of the Father figure.
