Beautiful Exile comprises of five portraits of women before, during and after orgasm. Filmed as silent single takes, the portraits are staged as projected on five large screens.

As Gerry Mander said, there's no such thing as remedial TV
watching. Nevertheless, this video tries to help you out...if you want to be an audience. Who wants to be an audience? Go ahead...expose yourself.

UNTITLED (Good & Evil) | 2006/2007 | 2 channel video installation | 10 minutes | * courtesy of LMAK Projects|

UNTITLED (Good & Evil) is a 2 channel video work that depicts the word
GOOD on one channel and the word EVIL on the other. The words are
written in dust, each on the floor of a white room in which a white
mouse moves around, dispersing the dust and messing up words.
