Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

My overall goal is to devote a minimum of five months solely to filmmaking and artistic processes. This will include (1) completing at least one unfinished movie on 16mm, (2) filming at least one new project, (3) focusing time towards new written materials and (4) researching new media practices and strategies for the exhibition of my work. The execution of these four concrete goals will determine if this project proposal is successful. These goals are structured around a five-month residency opportunity at Kunstverein Letschebach in Karlsruhe, Germany. While there, I will do research at ZKM Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, work on my film projects at BURSTSCRATCH in Strasbourg, and create new projects in the German Black Forest. These goals are intended for me to diversify the scope of my Fellowship, so that I am encouraged to seek out different activities and adjust my routine and practices. While they should be reasonable and attainable, I also expect to excel in one area. Perhaps, work begun with the idea of a short film could lead to a feature film, or work begun as a poem could lead to a novel or series, as examples. While I won't be disappointed if I "only" accomplish the set goals of this project, I am somewhat expecting and hoping for something bigger to come out of it. Beyond all else, I hope to become inspired by a particular project, and reach above and beyond one area of my goal sets, or perhaps even begin a new, unrelated project all together.
