Song of the Wild

Song of the Wild

Song of the Wild is a self-portrait video that responds to notions around body, place, and personal history. The abstraction of my body throughout the performance becomes indicative of worn ancient landforms or an alien terrain. Similarly, the audio component draws from personal recordings of me singing an early 20th century western song (Song of the Wild) that is intrinsically tied to my childhood. The inclusion of these allow the work to stem from a personal mythological language and simultaneously navigate the troublesome nature of The Western.

Song of the Wild. 2018. Digital video. Loop.
