The Violin Lesson, 2012

Single channel video

Professional violinist Patrick Neal gives the artist a beginning, and possibly futile lesson on the violin. Shot from the artist's apartment in New York, this video references Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window in a very personal investigation of what it means to look at the world as a beginner.
