Something Like Home
Experimental Short Film
Exploring the abstract yet visceral notion of home, Something Like Home intends to pull parts of the city into each other, in order to unpack the complex materiality and interconnectedness of our bodies and where we grew up. By overlaying footage of the streets of Hamilton (the artist’s hometown) with the artist’s body, Something Like Home posits that the environment we grow up in is an extension of one’s internal self. Something Like Home is an ode to growing pains, in our bodies and cities alike.
Born and raised in Hamilton Ontario, my work is heavily informed by DIY homocore zines, the archetypes in tarot, and personal rituals. Largely autobiographical, I work from a place of intuition and play, to document the small intimate moments within daily life.
