It's My Turn (Clip)
2010
Video
Video Clip of two performances spliced together into one diptych image (Video length is around 7 minutes). On the left there is the "eager" performance of saying "It's my turn." On the right there is the "exhausted" performance saying the exact same thing. The motivation for this video stems from a frustration with females that feel they are owed a turn at being in a relationship, being married, having children, etc. Beyond that motivation the performance is an exaggeration of the idea that turns are owed or deserved based simply on one's desire or feeling of what is fair.
