A Place to Rest, Syncopate
Ink animation, 3min 10sec, 2019
‘A Place to Rest; Syncopated’ is a visceral abstract portrait, a story of a life told through the eyes of a single room, and a love affair between person and space, image and sound.
Experimental looping animation with an original sound track created while on artist residency at Mise-en_Place Bushwick.
A Place to Rest; Syncopated premiered at the No Flash Video Show-Festival for Experimental and Avant Garde Short Films, at Zimmerli Art Museum, Rutgers University.

In 2018, I spent 2 weeks in a inpatient medical research study. I treated this time as an artist residency, creating the initial concept that would become my film "A Place to Rest; Syncopated," a piece that takes in a single room and is often constrained by its floor plan. Beyond research for my film, I created these abstractions of the walls of the hospital room I was in. I became intrigued by the ways the shapes of the practical and medical components of the space mimic the modernist art that the institution, like so many others, favored.
