boy's body/boy's spirit
Game Boy Camera diary video/installation | 2019

A Game Boy Camera diary film detailing three (3) healing rituals performed on the floor of my bedroom. Within this temple can I only begin to tell the truth.

I have used the Game Boy's abstraction as a mode for riddles/obfuscation (see Salt Swamp), but here I am at my most desperate. The video itself (8:00) manifests in this installation in the summer of 2019. This is not quite an altar for prayer but a queer space to undo a crushing repression.
