Yes, I Will Always Haunt This Place

This three panel video piece explores a strip club from fragmented perspectives using virtual worlds, Google Maps footage, stock images, animation, performance, and iPhone recordings. My persona and character "Squiggles" expresses herself in numerous forms and tells her story. Fantasy and reality blur as she recites the "WOW FACTOR" script from a sign hung in a real dressing room. Her description of "The Club" comes from an actual unnamed Strip Club's website. Finally, Squiggles, a veteran stripper who haunts the club, gives her first person perspective. Starting from a friendly greeting in the locker room, the videos slowly derail into a surreal and cursed landscape.
