my father asks what's going on?





Over the past four years I've been making work almost exclusively about my father, the Vietnam War, and my complex relationship to both. Through my efforts, I hope that I can contribute something new and meaningful to conversations about masculinity, national identity, and the reverberating effects of trauma on a second generation. I believe that the same things that preoccupy my thoughts and my work now, come from the same place as the things we as a changing nation have been attempting to work through, deny, and represent for years.
