For the last year or so, I've been collecting images and sounds that I've felt best communicate the heart of the poems in Sweet Ghost. Four years ago, I was gifted a tin box of 8mm film strips that my mother and father shot in the '70s. Most of the footage is of our family. Birthdays, Christmas, playing in the yard. I was 0-3 years old during the production of these films. The color, grain, and strange rituals documented, woke up a series of literal and metaphorical ghosts/memories for me. By weaving the images of these film strips with images and sounds that I have created, I tried to construct an alter, a spell, a re-creation of memories real or imagined.
