During my time at Weir Farm, I wish to focus on creating storyboards, editing video interviews, and creating design elements for a video project about the experiences of second-generation Cuban-Americans. With the recent changes in U.S. and Cuba relations, this project is timely and would show a different point of view, that of the child of the immigrant. I hope to complete storyboards, visual elements, and a short video that will show the visual direction and flow of the narrative.
I would also like to take advntage of the natural beauty of Connecticut and use that inspiration to create some small works to augment my video work. I lived in New Fairfield, CT in the late 90's, therefore it would be appropriate to include in my story. Artwork about nature and the environment are part of my visual language, both hand and digital work.
I am new to academia and it has been difficult to find time to focus and make art, edit video, or create new designs. I hope this residency will give me the focus and jump start I need to develop a clear vision for the project and ultimately complete it sometime this year. ~ Myda Iamiceli
