Work / video
title: Each Step A Blessing and a Curse, 2017, 6’40
‘Each Footstep a Blessing and a Curse’ is a short video, with text taken from the novel ‘The Unintentional Man’ by Tim Riley, which forms part of a series of autobiographical video collages referencing alienation and identity of self when faced with personal choices in defence of human rights; the subsequent psychological repercussions of such actions and the need for personal re-evaluation when choice has unforeseen outcomes in a paradoxical world.
