My apartment was robbed April 30, 2010. Equipment and valuables were stolen, but no one was hurt. This video was taken the day after in my room, a space that now felt violated and exposed. The act of beating a hand over my heart comes from the prayer "Ashamnu," or the repentance of one's sins on Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement. Instead of atoning for my own sins however, I was atoning for the individuals who broke into my apartment, who feel no guilt.
