Drawing from sources including her own memories and experiences, literature, poetry, science, and art history, Nina Yuen merges the personal and the universal in her videos. Incorporating herself into her films as protagonist and narrator, she builds dreamlike, loosely constructed scenes out of hypnotic image series that seem to unspool into snippets of music and the rhythm of her voice, as she recites poetry, reads passages from a wide range of texts, and recounts her own and other people’s memories. Though such weighty philosophical themes as death, time, and beauty run throughout her films, Yuen’s humor keeps things light, surprising, and strange.
