A couple are shown on a roof at night in four chronological segments. Then all four are juxtaposed/transposed. What artistic event occurs in each minute, then in all four at once? Each small, choreographed scene can be appreciated for itself, but on subsequent viewings, takes on a separate meaning. They become metaphors for our lives, our dreams and ourselves. On another level, this work is about repetition and memory. How do our perceptions change over time experiencing the same events?
