Guileless. Moments of stumbling. Does Tom exist? Something is being made. It's like watching an artist struggle (play) with language, love and her desire to be always honest. The video was made for the exhibit 'handwash my heart', at La Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, held from May 10 to June 30, 2012.
