“In film, there are two ways of including human beings. One is depicting human beings. Another is to create a film form which, in itself, has all the qualities of being human: tenderness, observation, fear, relaxation, the sense of stepping into the world and pulling back, expansion, contraction, changing, softening, tenderness of heart. The first is a form of theater and the latter is a form of poetry.” —Nathaniel Dorsky
The Lovers is a post-human, thirteen-channel, non-linear, video trilogy in which I meditate on the ways that we form our individual and often life-altering choices. The title of the project takes its name from the sixth card of the traditional Smith-Waite tarot deck. This card is commonly thought of as a card that informs the reader about sensuality but it is also a card about choice and how choice is shaped by our perceptions.
