I think this piece is working because I've lost my train of thought.
On your back

Following a research on the materiality of confusion and the psychological and social forces through which it is mediated, I am presenting a multi-channel video installation. The videos reenact scenarios of sitting and watching naturally occurring loops (taking in the view, looking up at the night sky, etc.) towards a circular search for nonconclusions, nonanswers, and the neither here nor there.
