Lumenati : Polar Bear Experimental Projection with Michael Coolidge and Jennifer Crighton – Calgary Alberta  2006 – 1 minute documentation

I’ve been exploring performance and projection for many years. Experiments like this one would eventually lead me to create the Lonesome Bear performance below.

Lonesome Bear Part One – Performance with Projection – 2010 – 5 min selection

The first part of the video is documentation from “Fists and Fables” at the Sala Rosa (Montreal). The second part is documents the performance in the IMCA studio at Concordia University.

Sunk & Bears sack the Glamazons – Lonesome Bear Photographic Novel – Photo Collage 2010

Two photo collages exploring the Lonesome Bear in different mediums.


Since leaving Concordia, I’ve scaled back my performances with projection to more lowkey slideshow narratives with animated gifs.

These slide shows both use comic and superhero narratives to explore trans feminism.
