The performer reads excerpts from Jean Paul Sartre’s Being and Nothingness as a bedtime story to a lover. Existential philosophy is punctuated by soothing words— “goodnight, my love.” This is the artist’s first work of video art, which was part of a larger installation project for an intermedia class with Rachelle Viader-Knowles.
