    35 Shots of Rum


    A perseverant meditation on weak connections between people— connections that are not always founded by a successful few first impressions, but are those that are just as well made from the degradation of stronger ones from estrangement or a mutual need for distance. Yet these fleeting and transitory transactions between people carry an important dynamic: there is a desire here to gain or regain closeness, and less of a fear of finality in ending them.

    The greatest artistic feat of the next few decades will need to be turning our generational depression that's practically become our zeitgeist into tactful and individualistic art while not pointing at the camera into the audience and rhetorically begging people to relate.…
