Sacred Solitude
5’33” single-channel film

From her mother in law the artist inherited a small pack of playing cards and a memory of her sitting by a window playing solitary. Using these cards as a prototype, the artist has created a new game with its own rules.  Today everyone plays games on their iPads. Does playing games alone create a scared moment of solitude or just help to avoid boredom?
