Forms of Identification is a personal, poetic dance film exploring an artist's struggle with identity crisis from debilitating loss. The film explores the ways we create who we are, our attachment to our various identities or personas, and where we must sometimes go to find our core selves after a perceived or real disaster.

The talented graphic artist Stacy Asher has designed limited edition art DVDs of my short film, Forms of Identification. Here are a few views of the outer and inner jacket, which unfolds, just like the film, to reveal different layers of our identity.
Forms of Identification explores the ways we create who we are, our attachment to our various identities or personas, and where we must sometimes go to find our core selves after a perceived or real disaster. The film asks: “When I’ve lost what I perceive to be the most important element of myself, what is left?; Who am I when all my circumstances have changed?” By asking these questions, the film encourages viewers to recognize their own authentic identities, which evolve throughout life, and to also recognize how the creation and experience of art has the power to heal and transform.
