SD video with stereo sound, 2:17
written and performed by Michele Jaquis and Jeremy J Quinn
This short video reflects on the shifts in the collaborators’ relationship and the complexity of bringing a third person, their child, into it. Superimposed shots of the two creating blind contour drawings of each other is accompanied by their voices reciting negotiations frequently made now that they are parents. In alternating voices each artist recites the same words, skewing gendered expectations and highlighting the equity in their roles.
