Filming and photographing dad's resting place

I visited my dad's resting place for the first time in twenty years. It was a few days before his birthday. I brought my Canon DSLR, Samsung 8 and audio to film my search for his plaque. Twenty years can play tricks on your memory and sure enough, where I thought it was, it wasn't. And just before I gave up, I found it and on camera. It was pouring with rain, so I didn't bother using the Canon because it would have gotten wet. I brought flowers and a card. The Samsung footage is great and the extra audio helps. I will edit it into a small film.

I Have Lost Myself

I Have Lost Myself are the words spoken by Doctor Alzheimer’s first diagnosed patient with Alzheimer’s disease.  When my mother was diagnosed I became her full-time carer.

The Manchester School of Art MFA Photography multi-channel video and sound installation, I Have Lost Myself is a powerful and disturbing compilation from 300+ videos, depicting the raw and honest portrait of living with dementia and the blurring of artist process.

I Have Lost Myself documents the daily rehearsals and technical experiments of Give Me the Key, filmed daily over thirty days for a future live art performance. What unfolds is the colliding of performance and the every day as the artist slowly loses her sense of self.

I Have Lost Myself is a powerful and disturbing statement on family relationships and responsibility, where art and the every day inevitably collide.

Tangerine and my stomping ground

Familiar with this area on a daily basis. I love walking and I walk every single day. Even at night, after shooting an event or show, I would be walking. You see many colorful characters on the street. Not the thing to do in LA, but there you are. "Tangerine" https://youtu.be/XoCHyjQnMGU via @YouTube

I’m taking on my mother’s identity by performing her, by caring for her and writing about her. By shooting a film a day I’m forced to film when I don’t always want to.”
