As part Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) Program at the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) I have the opportunity to present a thesis exhibition in the Kimura Gallery located in the UAA Arts Building. This semester the BFA committee approved my proposed thesis to have a self-portrait video and printmaking installation in the Kimura Gallery during the last two weeks of the Fall 2008 semester. For this exhibition, I will be researching various types pre- and post-video production including: filming, storyboarding, editing, filtering, and display/projection. Printmaking is my primary emphasis/major within the BFA program so I will also be experimenting with ways to combine prints and the act of printmaking with video, performance and installation. One of my goals with my thesis is to alter the Kimura Gallery space so that is becomes an alternate reality engaging the audiences' senses of sound, sight, smell, curiosity, and emotions. Because the exhibition is a self-portrait I want the audience to also have a better understanding of who I am, and on what it's like to be living within a body, mind and world. Cultivating my understanding of film editing, camera handling, and film photography presentation is also one of my goals. To execute this project is to present the abstract, intangible, and unspeakable qualities of "self" in a way that an audience member can relate to.
