If we could all just agree that everyone's art is somehow about memory, then perhaps no one would have to declare it in their artist statements anymore?
In the meantime, if you need an artist statement, it's just as well to use this.
You cannot crack my logic.
After years of saying I wanted to do a podcast but never getting around to it, all it took was my son’s enthusiasm to make it happen. He and I started a new podcast: It Sounded Better In My Head. It’s about... well, it’s sort of about games. But I think it’s actually about playing.
The kid’s really good, and I think it’s a lot of fun to listen to. I wonder how long we’ll stick it out? (He’s already talking about trying to get sponsors...)
Hi! We probably haven't met, but I'll be visiting your FILM 240 class on the 14th, and this post is to gather a few things for you that might be useful to help situate my work, or spark you to formulate questions in advance. As I understand, you're going to be in the throes of studying video and new media, and that's the context in which I'll be visiting you.
I don't know what's more galling. 1.) Being a film pariah for making experimental work. 2.) Being an experimental film pariah for making work that doesn't mesh with the parameters du jour. 3.)

Why not kick in... it's not like it'll actually get funded, right? Swope?
I'll be screening a collection of recent work in Los Angeles.
Things are proceeding nicely... here's a first look at the cover of the new DVD. I'd love to know what you think.
You can either spend a lot on marketing or slowly build a base of fans.

It was a success. That much I can tell you.
I wanted to capture this moment before it passes.
I think I need a break.
Home stretch. Practice. Travel. Rehearsal on Tuesday. More practice. Then on Friday is the show.
I'd never not brush my teeth because of a project overwhelming me. So why is it so easy to skip exercise or meditation?
