When a safe place becomes unsafe.


 “Creature” was a product of thinking about physical safety and mental well being. It was inspired by classic monster movies such as Creature of the Black Lagoon and Jaws that feature women swimming in the water, which quickly goes from a peaceful environment to one of danger, one that can drown you. Water, for me, is incredibly important and healing, but one can not ignore the terror and unexpected consequences of becoming too comfortable and allowing your guard to fall. It was filmed in my bathtub- a safe space that quickly becomes unsafe as I remain submerged indefinitely as the video loops.
