Video (2:09 minutes)

Window is a surreal film that evokes multiple worlds: reality, the dream-world, and the afterlife. The video begins with a black screen and the sounds of a subway train arriving in a station. The sound of the train doors opening cues the slow parting of the black screen (like curtains opening) to reveal the profile silhouette of a female figure lying motionless in front of a window. As the train departs, the image dissolves to a grassy field. The video ends when the black "curtains" close back over the scene, accompanied by the sound of rushing air and the ominous cawing of a bird.
