A two channel video.

A hand held video of the artist in an ancient Roman cathedral discussing what are in his opinion the greatest works of art and his desire to find in himself the power to make them. The work is both a satire and testimonial of what an artist wishes or desires in relationship to universal themes such as mortality, purpose, intention, and authenticity.
