    Queering Temporality is a video triptych on the topic of queerness in the context of the artist’s perceived Past, Present, and Future. The installation is made up of three vertically-placed monitors that simultaneously play found and self-recorded footage with reference to LGBTQ+ history, personal memories, and speculative world-building. The three screens are synchronized in a constant loop, paralleling one another in theme or topic, with audio clips of the scenes overlapping to form a convoluted and fused tone. Occasionally scenes of the Past seep into the Future and vice versa, demonstrating the “queering” of a linear understanding of space and time.
