1. This video was inspired by a poem written by Jennifer Ross, entitled Lilac Rain, for the QUA literary magazine at the University of Michigan-Flint campus.

    In the poem, a woman is discussing her inner most sensuous feelings about her body and nature. I took one sentence from the poem and used that as a counterpoint to the rest of the video.

    The concept is that this woman was contacted (during her moment of bliss with nature) by a C.I.A. operative involved in a remote viewing operation, using telepathy, thus compromising the mission and tainting the woman's private moment.

    Pretty weird. :)
