Dearest 150 150 Forest City Film Festival

Description: “Dearest” is part of a video series that use material such as stock footage, found text, found sound and popular moving image conventions to meditate on the relation between suicide and capitalism.

SWO Connection: I am presently based out of Windsor, Ontario, where I have lived for the majority of my life aside from a 9 – year stint in Chicago, Illinois. I received my BFA at the University of Windsor and became involved with various arts and activist communities in the region as an artist, educator and coordinator. Like many others from the area, being in close proximity to Detroit has an influence on me, amongst other things. Detroit techno culture, the “Big Three” (my dad was an assembly line worker at Chrysler), deindustrialization, austerity, and class struggle continuously shapes who I am and the place that I currently call home.

Running Time: 3 minutes
