The Tiny Ventriloquist is an omnibus video subtitled Final Thoughts, Series Two. It traces the movement of a voice from being rooted in a particular body (the artist's) to its dispersal through a variety of dummies. Individual components include: Great Blood Sacrifice, Not Torn (Asunder from the Very Start), Beaver Skull Magick, The Root Problem of the World, Living, Loving, Learning, I am fisting again, Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima, My Name is Karlheinz Stockhausen, Boy / Analysis: An Abridgement of Melanie Klein's Narrative of a Child Analysis, and Cartoon for those who have a certain fondness for ideas, but are tired of thinking. A comedy, but not a pretty one.
