A.K.A. PROFILE GLITCH – akaprofileglitch.org

Online Interactive Narrative | 2014
Writer/Performer
Directed by Lisa Marie Patzer 

a.k.a. Profile Glitch is an interactive online narrative about three characters, Marty, Maeve and Johanna, who meet at Harmony Village, an intentional community located outside of Ithaca, New York. The unique emotional and physical dynamics of communal life, with its own constructed social norms and rules of conduct, creates an intense interpersonal experience. The conflict between the characters highlights issues of self-identity and self-representation in different social contexts and how new technologies of the networked public disrupt the way people perform their identity online.

SELF-DEPORTATION: THE UNTOLD TALE OF A MARGINAL WOMANwatch trailer

Narrative | 20 min | 2015
Role: Editor, Sound Designer
Director: Eugene Sun Park, Full Spectrum Features
Producer: Cynthia Bond

Self-Deportation tells the story of an Asian American woman (played by Wanda Jin) who crosses over into a surreal world after a series of strange encounters on the subway. Caught in an endless loop of subway cars and mysterious hallways, she becomes lost in the fantastical landscape of "Real America" --dreamlike environments populated by various American archetypes: a peppy cheerleader, a fast-talking politician, an heroic firefighter, etc. 

Her final act of “self-deportation” – both literal and figurative – raises questions about our notions of home and belonging.
