Artist Statement: For Unfamiliar Body I collaborated with Japanese-born poet Miho Kinnas. She sent me a love poem and used a wistful, almost sensual voice in the reading of the poem, so I developed darker music, and more aggressive beat to contrast to her reading. The video is produced by my wife, Casey Clark, who owns a book trailer creation business.
