Fasteners - is a portrait of two women moving in and out of memory, fantasy, and isolation.

An experimental performance based video inspired by the movement of Japanese Butoh and the writings of Elias Cannetti. FASTENERS references the phenomena of twin like behavior within the confines of imagined role-playing. The twins in the video conjure roles of lovers, sisters, and mother/child struggling with their ambivalence to attach or detach. The concept of reflection is literally and metaphorically used in the video as the portrait of two women moving in and out of memory, fantasy, and isolation.
