Cracking up

(2021)

stereo audio with HD video, 4:00

Cracking up toys with the diverging meaning of its title; a phrase that suggests both cracking up in laughter and breaking into pieces. Through the narrative of two characters throwing eggs down a hill and running to retrieve them, bodily paroxysms of emotion, inertia, ceremony, and ritual are scrambled together, rousing the ecstasy shared by both passion and grief.
