Golem Rite is a 16mm expanded cinema film loop performance between myself and frequent collaborator Mary Lewandowski. We shot and edited the film while at Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, NY.
Two partners seek magic items (Solomon's Seal, a phial's worth of salt, the mummy's dust) to enact the golem rite, the creation of an evil-warding being.
Golem Rite was performed at Mono no Aware in December 2018. Excerpt
The film was also included as a circumambulate installation across three monitors in LOOPS at VSW.
