Sick World is a series of monologues, stories and statistics that focus on the absurd quality of our surroundings.
The video is a subjective representation of a dominant structure, specifically white North America. Once a consciousness has been awakened, the myths exposed, the ugliness revealed, one can no longer be quiet, accepting and tolerant.

Sick World is the expression of my awareness and discernment; humour is my method. Laughing relieves the instinct to cry, one can better assimilate the grotesque through laughter. Sick World is contemporary storytelling; subjective, informative, entertaining, intelligent and accessible.
