Over ten years ago, I started a video diary series, as part of a larger interdisciplinary project called Jean Says. A nod to Lou Reed, it was a play in persona making, exploring Minneapolis, and diving into being in the moment. I uploaded my videos (which were often 10 seconds or less) on YouTube and posted writings to a LiveJournal page. As I look back now on this project, I am proud that I developed and finished it. Jean Says was never going to be a long-term thing; it lived and breathed when I needed it. With that said, I am Jean Says though. Always and Forever.
You can check out a selected roll of Jean Says diaries this Thursday at 7:30 PM when Altered Esthetics screens a variety of video works from local moving image artists at The White Page. More details here.
This blog is a place for reflecting, updates, and interviews.
