Synopsis

This seven-part tape tells the story of a woman existing within both marriage and an 'affair,' both male-defined confines to her. Seen from her own viewpoint, she is a sleeper waking to a world almost totally inhabited by insects. She sees everything in extreme close-up, describing her life, the movement of the insects, sexual experiences, and finally her own death in the same microscopic detail. "Throughout the tape, I tried to maintain a visual silence; that is, the images may change frequently but movement within each frame is kept to a minimum." (Lisa Steele on Vimeo)
