Figment is a self-portrait short reel experimenting with video and animation. It is a visual presentation of my feeling of being alone and the want of having a male presence (companion) around. This piece is entitled "Figment" because this male is nonexistent and is only roaming my mind. As I do want to have a companion at the same time I'm conflicted. It's difficult to share your life with someone when you are constantly on the move and trying to find and understand yourself. That is why there is a sense of sorrow and distance between me and the animated man, yet he is still around, invading my thoughts.

Tracing Fela

For the Visual Communications course in my MFA program, we were assigned a word and had to express in three different ways. My word is Trace... Thus I take the viewer through a day in an artist's studio who is inspired my Fela Kuti. I show him tracing Kuti through mark making, reminiscing and following (via his footsteps).
