Description: This surreal, free-form autobiography is concerned with childhood and adult rituals, and the longing for meaning and connection during the often wildly absurd happenings of early life. Obsessive Becoming returns to Reeves’s early exploration of private narrative forms, poetry, and his interest in creating a more spontaneous and direct fusion between language and video. Words and photos of the expectations and disappointments of coming of age break down the boundaries of both mediums. Reeves draws from a wealth of photos created since the 1940's in his family’s enthusiasm for capturing time, featuring Polaroids and 16mm film.

In Reeves’s words, you “stand long enough and place off all that guards your heart.”
