I use music, video, and theatrical performance to tell multimedia narratives. My stories are (typically) concerned with the perception of and the ephemeral nature of reality and how we manifest the world around us using both internal components -- memory, experience, choice, beliefs, etc -- juxtaposed with the external forces -- social zeitgeist, politics, media, race, class -- that also contribute to and shape our understanding of the world. Research is a cornerstone of my creative process and I often find myself deep in the fields of neuroscience, quantum physics, social psychology, the history of mannequins, DIY survivalism, etc, depending on the project. My focus can be summed up neatly through the final line in the 1979 Peter Sellars movie Being There: Life is a state of mind.
I was born in Lowell, Massachusetts. At age 12 I decided I was going to be a rock star. I went to college in Vermont, studying classical vocal performance, then continued to live there for almost a decade more after graduating, writing, recording, and performing original music around Vermont and on tour as far south as Baltimore. In 2014, I moved to Boston, and started telling multimedia stories. I am currently working on my first feature length multimedia narrative called Reagan Esther Myer. I am a proud resident of Somerville, MA, where I also maintain a studio filled with mannequins and CRT TVs. I listen to podcasts about serial killers while running and use crosswords to "cleanse the mind."
