NOW PLAYING 

What happens when a relationship breaks down because of political ideology? CRUMBLE is a 30 minute downloadable experience. A short personal multimedia narrative exploring the breakdown between my father and I. Through text messages, emails, videos and audio files I document the four year deterioration of that relationship. The majority of content reflects real life conversations and communication. My intent in creating CRUMBLE is to recognize the painful split that has occurred among many families over the last four years of Trumps presidency. It is not meant to be a condemnation of either political party but simply a reflection of the extreme, cult like phenomenon many family members have succumbed to since Trumps rise to power. 

Instructions: simply follow the files and folders in numerical order to progress through the experience. All files are safe to download. File size 75MB

IN THE WORKS...

My Grandfather closed the Denver Novelty Company in the early 80's . He continued to live on the property in a trailer for a few years before moving to San Francisco. During that time he  received a hodgepodge of unsolicited items in the mail. Everyday items like a cassette tape, a worn paperback or an old toy. Whatever it was he began to discover these things contained deeper messages. Maybe it was an underlined sentence in a book or a song on a tape, he could sense something mysterious  in each item. They were memories, untold stories, ghosts if you will embedded in each item. An individual timestamp pertaining to the holder. The items became an obsession. Categorizing each piece he attempted to dig deeper and deeper trying to uncover that person's "ghost". Unfortunately he became sick and moved to San Francisco,  leaving the items behind.

That was until I discovered them a few years ago. What started out as simple curiosity soon became an obsession. That is why I must sell the items... I must separate myself from them.
