A transcription of what I have been told during intimate experiences while separating from my husband. Sections consist of destroyed originals from Leafless (2011), motifs of the "feminine" alluding to Jack Smith's Flaming Creatures (1963) and of reconstruction of a pomegranate. These decorative objects are re-valued through a controlled act of cutting, with an allusion to synchronization. Obscured images clear out while the hand-scratched text becomes harder to read with each section. Direct sound of cuts and hand-processing are composed of 26-frame shots. Un-synced, it reveals a hearing of past images, as an act of translation.
