Student Scholarship Recognition Day (SSRD) was created by the late CLA Dean Larry Cress. The main goal was to provide an avenue for Willamette students to share their exemplary work with their peers, educators, friends, and family. Another goal was to include the papers and projects presented during in a digital archive of student work completed at Willamette. Visit the SSRD web site.

This project is the third video in a series of videos which captures my artistic development at Willamette University through music and photography. This project continues work originally for a Carson Grant. The video is titled Dreamscapes and is divided into two sections. The thematic issues concern emptiness, nature, space, and people. The entire video is in monochrome with original music compositions designed to guide the viewer through the experience.
This project is an exploration concerning the personal freshman year experience at Willamette University through photography. The project came from a personal desire to document the experience in an artistic manner. The video is divided into two sections. The first documents, in chronological order, the experience while the second is a more abstract artistic expression using photography. The video is supposed to represent a singular narrative on the experience which is why the video is in monochrome. In the second part of the video I wanted to explore the notion of the “self” and see how the concept relates to ourselves and how we interpret the world around us. The main theme running throughout the video is the concept of serenity.

The first explores the relationship between nature and humanity while the second is a more abstract expression using a repeated image as a character. The entire video is in monochrome with original music compositions designed to guide the viewer through the experience.
