STILL LIFE, a video constructed of a still frame, takes our preparations for our own individual deaths as the motivation for its narrative. The video negotiates the boundary separating film from photography, life from death, movement from stillness. Stripped of all story, a bright neon sign invites the viewer to consider our ever-changing reality.
