A personal constellation of “Stowe-ments”—appropriated and re-enacted—sprung from a made-up line from a real-but-unseen film from my childhood years (Bad Girls, 1994) and the deep psychic indentations left by multiple viewings of Altman’s Short Cuts (1993) around the same time. Adolescent fascinations, fears, and desires are re-animated through play in the front of the green screen.

Produced for The Madeleine Stowe Show(e), curated by Christopher M. Reeves at Pique, Covington, KY.
