Poppa: (Toxic 2)

16mm film, 5 minutes, 2002 (additional image 1, 2, 3)

This was shot in 2002 at Phil Hoffman's Film Farm. It features images of my son, then 11 months old, transforming before your eyes through a series of chemical tinting and toning processes. The soundtrack mixes William's voice with me singing to him in numbers. The film is about control, or the desire for control, when faced with the reality of raising a child.
