Project Website

A DAY IN THE LIFE, FILMED is part of a larger project called THREE STORIES OF MONESTEVOLE, in which I focused on deconstructing and reconstructing the hard-to-describe sensory experience of being in a place.

For this piece, I attached cameras to the people who live and work there, and created a film from the footage of an average (and delightful!) day of life on site. You can find the film on the project website:

Past talks & Workshops

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it; boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

Only engage, and then the mind grows heated. Begin it, and the work will be completed.”

- Goethe (in German)
