Mr. Wonderful (1988) Super 8, color, 10 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Biography & Autobiography

Childhood programming is a recurring Price theme. His 10-minute Mr. Wonderful (1988) matches a single, scratched close-up of an LP portrait of goofy Fred Rogers to selections from the record. The effect is less ironic than defamiliarizing. At one point, Mr. Rogers sings a song suggesting that childish clowning is a way of warding off fear-an insight that provides the context for Clown (1992),

Sodom (1989) 16mm, color, 24 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: erotic, Literature & Theater, queer

SODOM is viscerally graphic and disturbing through its hypnotic mirage of human fragment absorbed in mutilation. Based on the biblical story, SODOM recreates this destruction through an editing style that lends itself to a kind of organic image breakdown, creating a collage of moving image.

Jellyfish Sandwich (1994) 16mm, color, 17 min

Genre: Experimental

Why are you so stupid ... and what are you trying to say I had a horrible dream that a big big elephant walked on a piece of cake and fell through it like quicksand and disappeared all that was left was a big floppy gray earlobe Someone with a small head and tiny body stuck a note in it then it sank into the cake too. I remember running upside down snagging my entire body against a screen of thread. I could hear silver songs of red white and blue and some guy walked by with a nice chunk of butt wearing flesh-colored bikini underwear I pulled them down and his ass was purple. Half the street I was standing on blew up. The birds in the sky made sounds like upset stomach and feathers fell hard on the top of my head. I squint my eyes for a second but nothing changed. Too many people had party on same day ...

run (1994) 16mm, color, 13 min

Genre: Experimental

Woke up walking alone from a dream toward a translucent sky a run day ... The edge electric against infinity revealed everything it was the moment before I was born the moment before I died I was pressed between glass I could see myself walking past I could see my eye looking at my eye I was standing someplace far away looking at myself pressed between glass I looked like I was moving but it was more like the way a worm pushes into itself to get to wherever it goes I could slip through those spaces and rest for awhile then distribute everything I am and all that I was but I panicked I continued to push my body into itself I woke pressed between glass I thought I was walking I saw myself walking I could see my eye looking at my eye and the place where I died when I was born
