how to become yourself?
For two weeks in July of 2015 I routinely went into the Fotoautomatica booths scattered throughout Florence and performed my daily dressing and make up ritual. The resulting images, which I then turned into a video, document my daily practice of self cultivation. This work examines how the performance of my identity (and gender) is tied, in a great many ways, to the city of Florence.
The sound piece that accompanies the film is created from sounds I collected throughout the city and a recording of me reading Barbara Ess' "Tell Us Something About Yourself".
