Shot with the intimacy of a video diary, yet stylized with the artificiality of Sci-Fi cinema, Earthling (w/sound design by Ryan Granger) decontextualizes domestic footage into a fabled portrait of a fictional, yet seamlessly naturalistic man whose bisexual desires arise with ballistic impetus.. The work follows a series of diary entries that reveal the confused psychology of its protagonist and his repressed sexuality. Bastardizing conventions of Sci-Fi cinema at the service of a handheld video diary, Earthling explores the "alienness" within the protagonist's psyche. The work problematizes the truth-value associated with video by blending perverse fantasies with autobiographical banality.
