In•divi•dual – Something enclosed that can be divided and shared, consisting of two parts.


This video triptych stands to illustrate a divided being, chained to mania. Left stands the confused educated (Equivikal Equayshun), repeating a panic mantra of introjected worries. Right stands the irrational primitive (Endlss Fall), paranoid, fast to knowing of pending harm, delusional mostly, in continual decline. Central to these the representation of self (Eskaype Attempt / Self Erayzer), striving to abscond from the shared real world by rubbing out its anchoring body-object; the hope being that – in doing so&nbsp_place_holder;– it can arrange internal equilibrium through disconnection.
