Song of ~Sinigang~
February 2022

This looping video and soundtrack collages the significance of foodways, cultural/anti-imperial activism, and the element of fire (as in agitation and as in heat). Each sequence is set over a close-up of a pot with boiling red broth for sinigang, a national Filipino soup.

Idioms, poetry & prose carry the viewer through the video, proposing them to “stir the pot”, whether that looks like on-the-ground organizing or participating in their respective traditions of making food.

Green Screen Quarantine
April 2020

A video collage of cellphone footage taken during the 2020 New York City lockdown period embodied by a dancing figure in front of a green screen.

This video is “screened” as a looping virtual background in Zoom during virtual dance events, allowing me to dance anonymously when desired.

I’m Every Woman | Whitney Houston
Fall 2015

A karaoke video of “I’m Every Woman” in the style of Whitney Houston plays over a home video of myself and my collaborator, Emilio Martinez Poppe, in our first apartment.

The video documents Emilio making lunch, dancing, and then inspecting a broken mirror (which broke as we were videotaping).
