If the miniature is a kind of mirror, it is a mirror of requited love. Like other forms of magic, it guarantees the presence of an absent other through either contagion or representation.

Susan Stewart -- On Longing


Joanne has had her heart broken.
She has also broken some.

A film flirting with the courting rituals recalled by three generations of women in one family is housed within a miniature TV, within a miniature world.

I created a miniature bedroom, comprised of bedrooms I remember fondly, to house this precious film. By giving it it’s own world, I believe I acted either to protect, venerate or impede disbelief in the words spoken.

I cannot decipher which.
