How We Learn to Love Vol. I
2:53 min (looped)

This video explores the tenuous dynamics between two women as they walk the “thin line” tightrope between love and hate, and ride the “relationship roller coaster.” The camera’s alternating distance and closeness to the subjects betrays their intimacy, and parallels how perspective influences our interpretation of another’s gestures and intentions.

Regardless of the flavor of interplay, there is always a space between them. And yet they remain with arms linked throughout the duration of the video, suggesting the continuum upon which love and understanding preside.

The video is the first in a new series of videos and photographs, funded in part by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
