Regardless of whether or not you believe that the end is near, there is no denying that this is the last year in this century that we can celebrate a day with the same day, month and year: 12/12/12. On this date I hope to have a special something to post. In the meantime, this year’s project is called “Odd Socks”.

This is what I’ll be doing in 2012: making videos and posting new projects that have no theme other than catching up from previous projects and starting new ones. This year is about matching socks, creative process, dabbling in the different. New postings will occur on the last day of each month.

In February during a special screening of Cinenova: All Hands on the Archive, featuring The Displaced View and Ronna Bloom’s video, I Feel Hopeful about the Future, I had the opportunity to chat with Ronna about her work and her current poetry. I was struck by the power of her video and her understated yet […]
