Issues of sexuality, cultural taboos and subjectivity are revealed and discussed in this experimental video through process of correction and structure of parallel narratives. It consists of three videos in which seemingly unrelated, multiple stories are interwoven through the interplay and juxtaposition of colors, misused and misspelt words and phrases, fake interviews, voices with difference accents, fiction and nonfiction. The surreal and subversive setting of performance videos are slowly covered up by a text with traces of correction and comprehension.
The footage was shot in 2003 in Alfred, NY, edited in 2007.
