Parallel Lines

This is an experimental video exploring how perfectionism drives me in my personal and creative life, as well as how it damages me. I juxtaposed the relative musical perfection of the Nocturne by Chopin with its imperfect recording and the imperfect technology of the audio recording with the “perfectness” of digital video. Many thanks to dancer and collaborator, Perry Hampton for his performance.

I shot the film, performed the Nocturne, cut and composited the film.
