The National Organization for Marriage claims that once gay people are legally able to marry one another, next people will insist on man-dog marriage equality.  Meanwhile, “Puppy” metaphors run rampant in the gay community, as the Puppy-Play scene experiences an unprecedented revitalization and acceptance in queer popular culture.  This short takes both into consideration as it presents a unique vision of romance.FEROCIOUS MEMORIES  player.vimeo.com/video/91680924 – you need to copy this link into your browser

 Artist StatementMy investigations of gender identity, queer sexuality, self awareness and interdimensionality use a cinematic language through a lens of popular culture.  At times humorous, garish, jarring, salacious, beautiful and shocking, I always aim to expose rifts in perception of current queer identity and culture.  I work with metaphors, creating new ones and literalizing and deconstructing pre-existing metaphors with the intention of shifting their meanings or rendering the metaphors useless.  Experimenting with shifting genres and unstable contexts, my work thematically and aesthetically explores the intersection of opposites (such as masculinity/femininity, high brow/low brow, filth/sparkle, etc.) and intentionally subverts learned ideals, working towards a reality in which the interplay of these opposites can create the unexpected.
