Artist Statement

"This video is composed of segments from a two hour long confession/interview that I taped. I selected only the silent moments, between the dialogue, in which I stopped to contemplate or express emotion related to what was being talked about.

The fact that the verbal component is absent leaves an opening for the viewers to project their own experiences, whether it be one of empathy, guilt or anything else."
