Pith & Nails, 2010
Three-Channel HD Video and Stereo Sound
(can be screened single channel)
14'55"
Featuring Tony Papaleo



Pith and Nails chronicles the peculiar habits of a compulsive maintenance man. The tenant storage units of an old apartment building are explored and fetishized.

Three-channels of HD video highlight small, wondrous moments of everyday life. The use of sound and video as equal partners provides a corporeal viewing experience.

* This video has been screened at the Big Muddy Film Festival in Carbondale, IL, and exhibited at Fazakas Gallery in Vancouver, BC.
