I'll Be Invisible
Stills from Films

While at the UCLA art school I took a seminar on Frank Stella.  
It was on his Black Paintings. The titles, the flatness, really  
stuck with me. After the Atlas project I found a certain limit to  
things i just did not care any longer to think about. I could not  
speak to the intimacy of faith and prayer, and to what seemed  
like senseless hate and dogma. So I made these works, 6-7 of  
them, films, some black, some white, with the grey quicktime  
bar in the middle. I found taking away the image and working  
with a field of color very expansive, creating a space that has  
interiority that comes from sound.
