I make performance based video art that uses the form and language of commercial advertising to critique the fundamental state of American social and political life. The world of my videos is one inhabited exclusively by my white hetero cis-male body twisted, multiplied, split, and digitally altered to the point of rupture. My goal is to use humor and entertainment value to entice a viewer into a process of identification that leads to deconstructing positions of privilege. Perhaps by excavating my own fears and desires I can help counteract the regressive politics of the moment.
