Artist Statement

This experimental short considers desire - the yearning for two, to become one. Such assimilation also exists in the array of techniques used in the video film -- photo collage, still frame and cell drawing animation. We wander through layers of language, lesbian sexuality and tribadism - a sexual act that is simultaneously both fusing and scissoring. In the end we are delivered into a dark void, a space to reflect on the nature of oneness.
