All these videos were made between March 2020 and present. When Covid hit and we were all sent into hiding, of course all our live gigs came to an abrupt halt. Fortunately, I love making video art! The challenge: making it essentially by myself (with the occasional camera-holding assistant from my roommate). I hope you enjoy these sometimes-silly, often elaborate quarantine creations!
