LOOK FOR ME (2016) is a multimedia project intersecting a two channel film and a live performance. The film component of this work was shot on 16mm using an Arri S camera. Portions of the film were hand processed and the footage was edited digitally. The music accompanying this piece is an original score by Clay Wilson and Jack Leahy composed on analog synthesizers and recorded on a reel to reel tape machine.

LOOK FOR ME is a visual portrait of a female figure in conversation with her memory. The performer on stage is multiplied through the projected images of herself in distant landscapes. This work is inspired by Simone de Beauvoir’s notion of ambiguity, in which a person is painted as being both subject and object. In LOOK FOR ME, the figure is extracted from herself as other than herself. The audience is invited to witness the performer as if she is looking at herself through the lens of her imagination.
