And thanks to The Save Movement New York for holding a vigil outside my “local” slaughterhouse. I’ve been filming them and the animals (especially the panting chickens) for the last year and had the cops called on me once for filming. Nice to have some backup. And for those that think this is against small businesses or anyone else’s “culture”, the chicken places in NYC/Brooklyn don’t support other small business, the chickens come from central PA and the goats and sheep come from Iowa. No food or water on their 4-day journey and the conditions are horrendous. Also, animal manufacturing and factory farming is gross American culture, it is not an indigenous practice (in fact it’s the opposite!). I am planning to gather my video clips soon and post so check back soon.
Thank you everyone, because humans are not better than animals. How can we expect to live in a society free of oppression if we are still oppressing animals? Abolish ALL Acts of Superiority! And if you don’t care about animals but care about the planet, consider this: factory farming is the leading contributor to climate change.
From 2012, new 'About' coming soon. In the meantime, please enjoy this nostalgia from my life five years ago:
I am an artist, writer, researcher, filmmaker, photographer, playwright, actor, and director in Ridgewood, Queens. I know that might seem like a lot of things to be so I should say I experiment in a variety of disciplines and mediums; concepts and absurdities. I studied in The Studio for Interrelated Media at Massachusetts College of Art. I moved to the area in June 2010 after graduating.
Since moving to NYC I've been feeling pulled back to my first loves: writing and theater; and the surreal, emotional, and abstract. I am also very involved with radical politics and I'm particularly interested in blending internal and external structures. I wrote a semi-surreal one act play called "The Rootless: A Play About America" last year which divulged the madness of capitalism and was performed at The Producer's Club with Love Creek Productions. I recently wrote another one act play called "The Thousand Lives of a Nomad" which is a story about the task, escape, and intrigue of continually making new lives in different places. The story is told through the lens of a 33 year-old woman originally from Finland and now residing in Brooklyn. It's staged to be a "live animation" of sorts and, personally I think it's both funny and thoughtful.
On-going projects include a constant evolving series of smoke drawings, a documentary about the business behind social media and Facebook; hope of rekindling my love affair with large format photography, and a perpetual mid-life crisis...
