“After shooting multiple clips with the first dress, all of which seemed pretty successful, I asked the model to put the denim one on. It was immediately better. The movement of the tiered denim and the bleached, painted-looking fabric seemed much more compelling. It still had the cultic feeling I was hoping to impart… The seagull sounds in my work are communicative, expressive of something. The seagull is aligned with the young woman; it could be the voice in her head, there’s a shared experience emerging.”
