“i am bored
i want an earthquake to shake me
i want something cataclysmic to happen in a faraway place
i want to be indicted for a terrible crime that has occurred on pluto
i said i needed coffee and couldn’t breathe
i am expressing myself pretty good right now”
(Tao Lin)

«I am about to express myself» is an urban portrait of a man and a woman. In a processed reality, they confront what is said in the interstices; where the sour comment and loneliness lives. Where the conflict ends and peace begins, or where the game has long since stopped being fun. Is it easier to relate to something big, the world out there, than it is to interpret each other’s small signals in everyday life?
