Each piece is a unique gem -- quirky, provocative, playful, often handmade, and always daring -- celebrating Joel's astonishing mastery of the tools of filmmaking, and his poetic grasp on the art of cinema. -- Alan Berliner

Joel creates cinema-poems that crack open the infinite. Tracing the jeweled veins of Gustave Moreau, J.K. Huysmans, and Gerard de Nerval, his work eludes the dark shadows of night & illuminates the evening with cascading colors and flickering dreamscapes.
-- Jennifer MacMillan, Curator, Invisible Film Series
