My former university, Tyler School of Art, Temple University, asked me to give a lecture about my work. The concept behind the promotional piece was the notion of coming home, or a homecoming. The word “homecoming” itself brings back vivid memories of high school football and alumni reconnections, so I went back to (broke into…) my former high school and stood in 100 spots on the football bleachers to composite the final image and video.
