Title: My Girl Burn, 2009, 2:54
Anne Frank and Sigmund Freud discuss an only slightly-revealed case of a third party who has undergone an abduction that transformed her sexuality. The reference footage from which the video was drawn, as well as its audio, is a collage of improvised performances by my father, a psychiatrist, and me based on reactions to a fictional narrative involving Alice and Wonderland being abducted by aliens.
Title: Anne on Hades, 2009, 4:10
Anne Frank discusses the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice’s attempted ascent from Hades. Her response is both emotional and philosophical. She is trying to understand how one human can let another down and all in the name of love. The monologue was written and performed by me. It is two channel. On one side Anne is talking in a short, looped sequence of facial expressions; in the other you see another short loop of clay figures attempting to climb up the stairs referred to in the narrative.
