In Soliloquy, 2015, I create a video dating profile for myself, in which I directly address viewers as potential suitors. An awkwardly self-conscious self-portrait, the video functions also as an audition tape for love. Made during a residency at the Lighthouse Works which is located on the fairly remote location of Fishers Island, NY, I layer and shuffle statements of self-description over somber footage of myself reading alone and gazing at the sea. The island becomes an oblique metaphor for solitude and the desire to connect.
