    PAINTED is the first in a trilogy of screendance films about our tug-of-war with wilderness (check out the sequel, "Brief Candle", at vimeo.com/67037193). Here we explore a building’s decay. The choreography and original score are both in decrescendo to illustrate the building’s retreat from the physical world, and Nature's advance on it.
