TIME IS, 2021
A short film for my final project in junior year art class that visualizes my aspiration to form a connection between nature, time, and blackness as an aesthetic and spirit. I wanted to showcase the power of continuity, love, and acceptance and put the audience in almost trance state. this film represents the duality and multidimensionality of my interests in music, visual art, and art history collating this with Sun Ra's "Space is the Place" by Sun Ra. This is the first film I've ever made and It Is personal to me and I directed, acted, and filmed with the help of my friends.
