Just Like Us
15:00, Video, 2013

A familiar landscape comprised of box stores and parking lots proves a rich site for longing, intimacy, and geographic change. Celebrities observed in this environment and are reduced to ordinary beings in the process. An enigmatic protagonist unveils moments of subjectivity that escape into the piece like a contaminant, rupturing the view and evidencing the paradox of connection and belonging within systems that simultaneously contain us and comprise us.
