(2014) Video, short film.
Inspired by creating performance gifts for my schizophrenic mother ‘Dinosaurs and Sea Hawks’ is another gift in my ongoing performance work. The dinosaur mask is intended as a reminder of childhood and quite literally a mask to hide from the harsh reality of the world through my mother’s eyes. Directed, filmed and edited by Linas Phillips. Written and acted in by Ezra Dickinson. Sleeping under a bridge is a man and his dinosaur mask. Waking up, he walks into the heart of the city and puts on his mask. A friend, a stranger, a kindred soul emerges and the mask is passed off and traded. The man watches and then walks away with a Sea Hawks hat.
