  • YOU, THE VANDAL

    A single channel video installation, I filmed this in and around the desert of Phoenix, Arizona, where I grew up. I created a cosmological environment inhabited with only teenagers and the elderly, who interact with little speech and only a hodgepodge of references or knowledge. Storyboarded as a post-apocalyptic non-linear narrative, the video revolves around political standoffs, karma, religious fragmentation, games, communal force and cyclical patterns, all designed to displace yet enliven the viewer.
