In thinking about issues pertaining to climate change, I’m sadly often oblivious to how climate change affects me directly. Living in a north-east coast landlocked city, I don’t experience Ice Caps melting, extreme droughts and water usage restrictions, massive forest fires, floods due to water swelling or a loss of resources due to any of these reasons. The best way for me to consider climate change is by thinking of the issue on a more human scale. In particular, drawing from my memory of the weather in Philadelphia, which at one point had clearly defined four seasons during the 80’s and early 90’s. In approaching this topic I question, “How does our collective memory of weather conditions from our past inform our belief and knowledge of climate change today

It is easier to get forgiveness than permission.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Love is blind.
Tell me a story about a broken heart.
A broken heart is the most painful thing in the world. being alone? Do you know how it feels to be in a relationship where you feel that your partner doesn't love you, but you still stay with them because of your fear of Is it.
Oh no. No fears here.
Have you ever been in a situation where, despite your best efforts, you were unable to do something that you really wanted to do? Such as,not being able to get the job you want, or not being able to meet someone special?
Yes! I've experienced this pain.
Well, the reason is that we cannot control what we cannot see or hear. We can only control what we can do and see. If you practice your English and German every day, you will be able to speak and understand them well.
It's just like that. The more you can do something, the more you will be able to do it.
I'll take that to task, It's more like, what do I have the patience to learn.
So, what do you want to learn.
To sew, properly.
Tell me a story about a sacred magical object. A dried up ravaged trophy found in the woods that transports one into another space and time.The driftwood is a deep grayish brown color and has markings on it.
What do you think of driftwood sculptures? Do you have any of your own?
Sure, I consider it sacred. But it's not in my possession. Therefore I have recreated it for safe keeping and to preserve its magical powers.
I see. So you created a replica of it?
Yes, it was found off a woodsy island. It's a very rare and magical thing. What do you use it for? I stare Into It. Is it a good thing to do?
Helps pass the time. But I wouldn't dare do this at night. I believe it to activate a portal.
There is a lot of mystery surrounding it. You should be careful.
What do you think will happen?
A lot of people believe in magic and things like that.
I want to be transported to another time and space.
Well, you know they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Another quick comp that illustrates my mental health and the horrors of professionalism and job hunting in a capitalistic society.
In my take on recreating sound for the drug montage scenes, I want to remix the perceived sounds we associate with addictive behavior, exaggerating the duality of comfort and violence. Beginning with the human elements, I hope to create new organic sounds to be associated with the effects of addiction. Layering foley sounds with the organic elements, I intend to find a rhythm that will eventually turn into a song. I like the original montage scene, I don’t necessarily find anything wrong with its execution. However, my goal is to push for a more human sound rather than a mechanical sound that is heard in Requiem For A Dream.
