Just Like Us

A familiar landscape comprised of box stores and parking lots proves a rich site for longing, intimacy, and radical change.

An enigmatic protagonist reveals little moments of subjectivity that escape into the piece like a contaminant, rupturing the view and evidencing the paradox of connection and belonging within systems that simultaneously contain us and comprise us.
