Completion of this film turned out timed to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of 9/11. The film links the memorial in Oklahoma City with the one built in Berlin in memory of the Jews murdered under the Nazis. My thinking as I completed this film was developing within the general concerns of the essay I wrote on Abraham Ravett and Jayce Salloum for Afterimage, Jan./Feb., 2012. The footage includes several performances for camera. In the larger picture of my work with the body the shoots constitute a transition from performances conceived as pro-filmic events to performances planned as live actions.
