Star Crossed (2017)

1 min 12 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Silent

"On October 13th, 1819, John Keats writes a love letter to Fanny Brawne. 2017 edition. The fruits of a 'famous love letters' Google search play alongside the isolated motion of a texting hand. In the age of 'u up?' I propose a fervent expression of deep love and dependency that spans centuries. 'I cannot exist without you…you have absorbed me…you have ravished me away by a power I cannot resist'."
