Emma Alamo & James Jamieson: Monster Lessons

About Us: Emma Alamo and James Jamieson live together in an old funeral home in Chicago. Though Emma works with words and objects, while James prefers to work with still and moving images, the two share a passion for details and a compulsive desire to document their lives through their art. This is their first collaboration. Our Piece: In 2006 Cookie Monster became a healthy monster who was able to control his instincts and make positive decisions. That was the same year that Emma began binge drinking. In this comedic music video, the iconic blue muppet appears in an alley behind our house and takes her on a journey of self-discovery, through which she was able to become confident in her recent decision to become sober.
