Secret Florida is an imagined archive of queer histories. I am interested, not in photographs as materializations of memory, but in the "memory" of physical substrates themselves. Making anachronistic portraits from alternative film formats, I rework their surfaces through analog and digital processes. The aesthetic effects are meant to emulate queer history—personal stories both lost to time and timeless. Unable to be dated, the images are seemingly discarded only to be rediscovered and reinterpreted. My artistic process and materials, including found objects, reflect my subject matter, with the act of assembling an archive becoming the creation of a performative identity that has long been denied or hidden from view. Put differently, Secret Florida is itself a process of queering the archive.
