All the People Dreaming
Single channel video, 2006, 3;34
All the People Dreaming (2006), begins with Jack Kerouac, on the Steve Allen Show in 1959, explaining why he writes. “All the stories I wrote were true, because I believed in what I saw...” It’s a kind direct meditation on the “why” of the creative process— the desire to do something with a life, to capture something of the experiences and relationships within it, to be inspired by the immensity of it all.
