The Mist in Mystic (2012)

The Mist in Mystic video was part of a live performance I did for Slidefest on April 28, 2012 at the International Center for Photography. The video was played to illustrate a short story I wrote of the same name. A personal account on the obstinate nature of curly hair, the story tells of the public humiliation experienced from a failed attempt to blend in.

The photographs featured in the video were made using a process I call "water collage" during which I submerged cutouts of found imagery under water, letting the fluid movements of the water determine their placements. The final image is then embedded within a white silhouette of curly hairstyles sourced online. Video run time 02:57.
