“Unlucky Son” was created in conjunction with the show Happily Never After which opens March 5 from 5-8 at PUNCH Gallery in Seattle. It was shot and edited during the confines of one day. The lead character, a handmade marionette, is a biographical conglomeration of lost, lonely, and wandering young souls. In the video, he struggles with addiction and finding his place and purpose in society. His journey takes him all around Seattle, from the U-District to Ballard to Capitol Hill. This video will be installed at PUNCH Gallery for the month of March.
