Erosion documents two hours of my day. On this day, for the first time Ð I felt old. And I felt so alone. As the piece travels throughout the body, it weaves together patterns of flesh. These wrinkles and scars are visible signifiers, showing my pain to the world. These images, shot over an hour, are for the most part fragmented, they cut up my body, my face, my scars, my pain and my sadness. The sound is fragments of conversation and thoughts overlayed.
