I find contrast in the two creative spaces I have established for myself. One in the city, the other in a remote desert sanctuary. I'm aware at a conscious level the contradiction they represent; because these environments symbolize themes that shadow most of my films: Humans/technology and digital/analog.
Phoenix, Arizona- 2010
Digital: The city conveys the omnipresence of technology, the power of digital technology and the efficiency in production that machines can bring. When I sit at my editing suite in the city, I know I can apply ideas and get things done.
Looking out at this modern city, I can't help but think my life inside an modern-day empire and its place in history. I always find myself scanning the landscape and observing: All with the hope that from my perch I can watch everything play itself out and adjust as necessary.
As the city illuminates the darkness, I think of the meaning of our place at this moment..... That perception of reality is what my films are all about.
