Cut These Strings by Juliet Escoria
Logic tries and fails to find its footing in this absurdist video. Sounds line
up in an odd way with little coming together in a coherent manner. No worries

life. Preparation for the insane inanity begins with a simple rip of the chest.
Deep in the chest, that’s where the heart resides thudding with meticulous
precision. It is almost comical how precise bodily functions are compared to
