The Siren
excerpt of single channel video with sound; 2019

In The Siren, a mermaid-costumed protagonist anxiously scales the crumbling remains of a graffiti-covered bunker, perched precariously on a coastal cliff known as Devil's Slide. As a low frequency audio score rumbles, the "siren" struggles to gain footing, bound by a garment that combines an image of kitsch seduction with an unsettling vulnerability. The myth of the Sirens serves as a warning about flirting with knowledge beyond our grasp; the question of what to do with what we do (or do not) know remains the central moral issue of our time.
