Weight – Michigan Quarterly Review


Image Description:

The video shows white human feet balancing on a log in the forest, followed by shots of a muscular human being in black clothing and with curly hair swinging from tree to tree, climbing a hill, resting in branches, on the log, in a shelter made from branches. A beautiful strong black and white dog joins them in the shelter. The two touch. The dog is balancing on the same log in the forest. There is eye contact. The video jumps back and forth between the two. Playful being with one another in the forest. In a long-held shot, the human and the dog run through the forest again and again, a loop. The image fades to black. (Petra)
