Living Like Kings
The birth of hip hop in the 1970s coincided with a surge of interest in chess among Americans, inspired by Bobby Fischer's landmark victory in the 1972 World Chess Championship. As our great American cities struggled with issues of race and class, a new generation of players enthusiastically competed over the board and a new art form flourished.
'Living Like Kings' explores this unlikely collision, making clear that the lessons one can learn from the mic and the chessmen transcend the categories race, class, faith, and culture. The film documents where and how these two worlds intersect and provides a unique lens through which to see our nation grapple with significant issues.

What Am I
The experience of uninterrupted image spaces is, at once, daunting and exciting. Referring to these shifts in our perception, I am particularly interested in a creative process whereby the nature of wholeness between sound and vision has an affect in shaping consciousness.
In relation to the moving image and sound I often find sound needs no relation to image, as viewer we naturally seek out repetition, rhythm and difference. So it is through repetition, rhythm and difference that I aim to draw the viewer closer to a sense of presence.
I am interested in going in and out of mind, exploring various awareness techniques to create works that challenge and disrupt the cross talk in the brain between thought and perception.
When we think of space as ‰ÛÏextensive,‰Û as being measurable, divisible, and composed of points plotting possible positions that objects may occupy, we are stopping the world in thought. We are thinking away its dynamic unity, the continuity of its movements. We are looking at only one dimension of reality. (Massumi, B.
