Hello my name is Sarah, is a fast paced video composed of short chapters. As a trans, gender non-conforming masculine of center person named Sarah, I have experienced a lot of uncomfortable situations centering my name. The name Sarah, shows up in the form of legal documents, cakes, mail, introductions, personal interactions, the internet, music, and famous people. The compilation of Hello my name is Sarah is a small fragment of situations I have endured. The individual stories range from four seconds to a few minutes. The video explores the usage of puppetry, humour, paper dolls, footage from my childhood as well as archival video footage from a decade of making work.
