I Give You Life (12min, 2010, video/16mm) *BEST VIEWED IN THE DARK WITH STEREO SOUND OR HEADPHONES*
Explanation 1: I never expected to make a video about Matthew Shepard, or Matthew Shepard's father, for that matter. But, after making this for reasons I'm still discerning, I can now see that we left something behind back there in 1998 -- a collective void, perhaps, that keeps widening with every murdered queer kid.
Explanation 2: This piece takes the form of a loose conversation, held between multiple mediated voices or perspectives and centers around multiple voids: the blank screen (filled), the absent vocalist (filled), losing a loved one (unfilled), discarded edits (partially filled), justice (partially filled).
