bedtimes stories

This story was shot in my bedroom, a basement studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York. I have Georgina acting out some of my own before bed habits – snacking, masking, smoking, and crusing the web. Shortly after this was shot, I found 2 feet of mold hidden behind a big plastic bag of clothes, and I was forced to move out. I asked Georgina about her own before bed habits, described below.

What's the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning? Drink a big glass of water!

Are you a morning person? God no. I hate mornings. The longer I can stay in bed in the mornings the better.

What's your before bed ritual? I oil my face and steam it with a hot towel, drink a big glass of water and then curl up.

What's the weirdest dream you've ever had? When I was little I had a dream that my best friend was an anime character and my mom was a vampire and attacked him. I was so scared of my mom after that!

Haha.

Are you the big spoon or little spoon? Little!

What's your favorite position to sleep in? curled up in a ball on my side. Or with my legs crossed in the air! Haha.

What do you wear to bed? A big sweater

Strangest place you've fallen asleep? I don't think I've ever fallen asleep somewhere weird! I know that's odd but I'm self conscious about falling asleep in front of people.

What makes you happy? food and coffee and lots of sunlight and good books

How do you want to change the world for the better? I want to be part of making people more emotionally open and empathetic. I think just connecting with a few people and getting them to be more open will encourage them to take that elsewhere. We should all be more empathetic and loving towards each other. I think art and creativity are the gateways towards that.
