My most recent explorations involve the idea of using supernatural horror as a way of reacting to the unthinkable world— that which is out of our control. Natural disasters, random acts of violence, and global pandemics lend themselves to creating monsters out of non-physical foes. The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting quarantine occurred while making this work and forced me to actively engage in what I was studying. I have used my isolation to create a series of short, mixed-media videos to be digitally installed in an interactive website and experienced as looping, uncomfortable nightmares. The title of this digital installation is Small Fears and can be found at https://smallfears.com/.
Below is a sample of looping films and still images made from animation and digital collages. There are more discoverable videos on the website. I did not want to ruin all of the surprises and hidden elements.
