Wait is a performance piece in which 5 individuals occupy a public space and recreate a large version of the Apple wait cursor. They bring together 5 pie-shaped pieces of cardboard, painted to mimic the trademark beachball image, and they move in a circle. These performances have taken place in a variety of public spaces, ranging from a large public library to a pedestrian bridge over the Mississippi.
These humorous performances played with the idea of setting the physical world in a state of idleness while framing the environment as a large computer screen. The wait cursor is associated with malfunction or idleness, which is sometimes followed by a loss of informations.
I am a Minneapolis-based artist/filmmaker. I work on a variety of motion, still, and installation projects with an emphasis on finding new ways to capture and tell stories. Linking humor with a visual sensibility is central to my process.
I currently work in a hybrid production-creative role where I have experience concepting, shooting, and editing motion and still work. I graduated with a Master's Degree in Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art in London. Prior to this I worked as a video tutor in Switzerland, and in production/creative studios in the US and Canada.
I am continually seeking out interesting and creative projects, both personal and for work. Please get in contact if you are interested in working together.
