“Soma Room” (2021 Video Essay)


Back at the end of 2020 I was living in Boston studying printmaking and film at MassArt. At this time, I was processing many things in my life, and I was drawn to creating a video essay that spoke to some of the reflections I was having.

“Soma Room” is about the places where our soma / body feels the safest. It’s also an exploration of the contradictory powers of nature. It’s an acknowledgement of the warmth it can provide, and also the revelation that we are fragile when the mud cracks, or the winds don’t blow our way.

This project was shot during one day at the Arnold Arboretum on 16mm film.
