“What Draws Us Together, What Drives Us Apart”
I edited this video with writer/director Maia Chao, who performed alongside her sister Zoë. Commissioned by The Shed for their Inaugural Open Call:
“...explores sisterhood by stitching together reenactments of scenes between sisters from 12 mainstream American movies that Chao grew up watching with her mom and sister, Zoë. Together, the interracial Asian American sisters step into roles originally played by white women, with the scenes restaged in places where the two grew up...the Chaos reimagine and embody the many contradictions of race, gender, sexuality, and politics embedded within scripted sisterhood.”
“Look at Art. Get Paid.” and “Critic’s Choice”
From the LAGP (Look at Art. Get Paid.) website:
“Look at Art. Get Paid. is a socially engaged art project that pays people who don’t visit art museums to visit one as guest critics of the art and its institution, thereby reversing the relationship between the educator and the educated, the paying and the paid.”
The first video, documenting the 2017 pilot for Look at Art. Get Paid., was shot and edited by myself. The second video, following the LAGP-funded exhibition Critic’s Choice, was shot by John Gourlay and edited by myself. From the website:
“Critic’s Choice is an exhibition of site-specific art interventions throughout the RISD Museum. The interventions—which span the Museum’s galleries, lobby, public signage, and website—address community members’ critiques about access, inclusion, and cultural and financial equity at the Museum. Each intervention was carried out by a commissioned artist and advised by a paid “critic”—a Rhode Islander who doesn’t normally visit art museums.”

I edited and assisted shooting these videos on Todd Oldham’s design processes, which were featured in his retrospective All of Everything: Todd Oldham Fashion at the RISD Museum.
