An experimental self-portrait, MMXIII explores phenomenological subtlety, intersections of construct and verité, and the ways in which technology, landscape, and beauty coalesce. Here, an artist's reflexive gestures investigate moving images and the nature of image construction, blurring lines between cinema, still photography, and performance art.

"A complete masterpiece."Brandon Colvin, MADISON FILM FORUM

"A type of existence where interaction with the physical world is mediated by manufactured objects [...] Nature has been subjugated into image, but if there's any sense of loss or protest it's buried deep in the subtext."Paul Sbrizzi, HAMMER TO NAIL

"There is a beautiful balance between [the] visual and sound design, and ideas gently emerge as to how we relate to nature, technology, and the past. Somehow in the end, I felt more story and emotion watching MMXIII than in most films I see."
Patrick Wang, director, THE GRIEF OF OTHERS
