This video was created using appropriated footage from old instructional factory films, a film about Army nurses and medics during WWII, and footage of icebergs and glaciers. Part of a series tentatively titled "No Man is an Island", inspired by the thoughts of John Donne and being a part of the human race. Each piece in the series is inspired by the obituary of someone to whom the artist was a stranger.
