Kiddie Ridersis a series of 3 short videos (Ice Cream, Lollipop, and Hotdog) where I explore that crux of childhood innocence and emerging sensual desires; the humor, the discomfort, and the bizarreness.

ROLE Director, Art Director
I conceptualized, directed, and art directedLayers: a video portrait series of 10 videos as an initial exploration into a wish I had years ago: "Wouldn't that be great? To be able to just peel back all these emotional layers that I've allowed to pile on me through all these years... diffusing, morphing, opaquing the real me... and just return to that pure iron Alina?"
I asked each participant to arrange 7 colors in an order that related to their life from their birth to the present (whatever meaning each color had to them). It's a metaphoric cleanse, a ritual to return to pure.
