Raised in Captivity

This is a video project consisting of hand drawn components, digitally rendered components, and appropriated footage. Sound is both appropriated and self-composed. Spoken-word is written by and spoken by the artist.
I strive for destabilization, where a maximalist vocabulary aids in decentralizing the viewer as they optically navigate a schizophrenic environment that seems untethered from earth-bound gravity. This process illuminates the overlaps between reality and the imagined; how seeing, unseeing, or not seeing at all enables acts of remembering, forgetting, and rebuilding.
