1 min 42 sec10 channel installation / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"Cutting abruptly between three clips, the first a rose laid along the forearm, the second a piece of glass cutting the forefinger, the third a banda id placed over the fresh cut and used to pull the trigger of a cap gun.

*shotting from your wounds / leading into 10: my metaphorical death."
