Review: Infinite Monkey Theorem – Metropolis M
A Method for Blue Logic enacts fantasies from Internet conspiracy forums, after the artist received emails claiming them to be an actress hired by the government to help fake a tragedy. Using these conversations as an instruction guide for self-genesis, a parallel universe is constructed. And as a personal response to a stranger, the film continually shifts between a strange loop of cinematic fiction and absurdist para-documentary.

Passengers (2010 — 2014)
edition of 10, each unique

Passengers is a series of video works in which the artist has edited themself and others into scenes from Hollywood films, each of which is set in a car interior. The substitution is seamless, largely thanks to the performances and also the skilled technical execution. Both comic and sexually charged, the silence of the exchanges accentuates and heightens each facial expression and nuance, suggesting meaning and understanding between the characters.
