Her Heart is Washed in Water and then Weighed

13 minutes | 2006 I 16mm + 8mm

Subtle juxtapositions evoke parallels between static monuments and living families to suggest what is lost to time and age.  A trip to Rome; a divorced grandmother's rumination on roast chicken; an autopsy and an open window.
