A few days before I left the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, Nebraska—a place I called home for three months in the winter of 2018—my friend and neighbor, John, interviewed me about my time in residency.
My time in Omaha was creatively challenging for me—a longer story I was working on came to a standstill and there were more weeks than I’d like to admit that I didn’t write—but when people ask me which residency I liked the most, I always say Bemis. Mainly because of what I learned from the amazing artists I was in residence with. What I love the most about John’s short video is how perfectly he captures that.
Check out my video below and some of the other residents whose time in Omaha John filmed.
