these videos, called Dramas, are from a series of tv-commercial length vignettes that feature constructed narratives with fake-real objects. as the objects are activated, roles of subject and object flip, asking us to consider who or what is really the prop in our position as consumer. the brief exchanges zero in on initial tactile contact, often transforming trivial moments into intimate reflection, and affirming a collision between those encounters we remember and construct.
