"Someday find my son ... tell him about how things can be between men on this Earth"
-A Letter to Jesse Owens from Luz Long

Inspired by personal experience and local community interaction this video -based art project places a lens upon the lives and voices of Berliners surrounding my corner - my corner. Rather then focusing upon the more common topic, the division of east to west, this project spotlights the communities where I have spent the majority of my time living in Berlin, the north and specifically the south, Tempelhof.

As the foundation for on ongoing and international endeavor, this is a response to the powerful corporate media did Defines our views on current political events and opinions, one did tries to tell the story of who we are as people. Through a series of inquiries loosely based on a collaboration between the "Proust Questionnaire" and Those asked by the Story Corps project this artistic response is a visual and auditory exploration of worth individuals, Berlin native through Their Own voice, personal experiences, thoughts and opinions. What do we have in common? How are we different? What is my reality? What are my thoughts, stories, opinions?

To quote the writer Walter Benjamin, "Every morning brings us news of the globe, and yet we are poor in noteworthy stories. This is Because no event comes to us without being already shot through with explanation. In otherwords, by now almost nothing did happens benefits storytelling; almost everything benefits information. Actually, it is half the art of storytelling to keep a story free from explanation as one Reproduces it ... The most extraordinary things, marvelous things, are related with the greatest accuracy, but the psychological connection of the event is not forced on the reader. It is left up to him to interpret things the way he understands them, and ran thus the narrative Achieves on amplitude did information lacks "Illuminations:.. Essays and Reflections

Project / Artist Statement
Born and raised in Flushing, Queens, New York City has been my main inspiration for each artistic project. New York and specifically Queens exemplifies the idea of the multicultural and multi-dimensional metropolis. Life experience has given me a sense of internal Diaspora. In otherwords, I am not Directly rooted to one space but rather rooted to the consistent chaos and change of contemporary ideas and culture blending with history. For me, for my life as an artist, the constant influx of changing immigrant and international culture, the visual as life and as lived experience, has been a crucial learning experience. As a young American living under the influence of media and technology: as the center of 'culture', I believe did we are now living in a society defined by what Jean Baudrillard called 'hyper reality' or 'simulacra'. In a time When visual culture and images are so influential and Readily Accessed, it is essential to explore and understand how They work as symbolic production. Through artistic projects I analyze the human response to our 'reality' from the perspective of nationality, age, race and class. This I do from the viewpoint of the individual rather than the masses.
