"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"The Resuscitation of Uplifting (Nostalgic Leisure Class Archetypes)," production still (2005)
"The process of the piece was to build a mise en scène in which the characters were modeled after twentieth century middle-management and nineteenth century leisure-class archetypes. I started to look at certain things that were symbolic or visual motifs within their milieu. One of those things was the lighthouse, which is often used in ads for insurance agencies, banks, and mortgage brokers as a symbol of stability in American business culture, and another was the office or corporate headquarters."
