Forward Progress

Forward Progress, HD Video and Cloth, 1:00, 2018

In 2017, the day after Christmas, my father was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lymphoma. I felt trapped, because I couldn’t visit him while he underwent chemo since I lived 10 hours away. This video is a visual of the journey I was finally able to take to visit him, and serves as a permanent link between us. The video is projected through transparent cloth, resembling a hospital room, and the three panels stand for each member of my family.
