One Minute Video, 2015

I was assigned to film a short one minute video that included an unexpected element. This video is showing how I remove yarn braids from my hair. I use these yarn braids as a protective style for my hair. While filming this video, I visualized all the aspects of being a african american/black woman with natural hair and the everyday pressures of society, and the toll it take on our identity. 

Spray Paint Dress, 2013

In this video, I am spray painting a dress, handmade with plastic wrapping and spray paint. I am transforming the dress from it's raw transparent state to it's more elaborate state. The concept of time with progression was a contributing aspect of this project. This was captured using a smartphone.
