The video piece is an immersive audiovisual experience, comprising 26 distinct vignettes that artfully connect each letter of the alphabet to a unique term or intimate practice. The absence of a conventional narrative voice in the video serves to accentuate the lyrical musings on relationships built upon the foundation of love, trust, and equality. Through a playful and exuberant lens, this work demonstrates how fetishism can be transformed into a vibrant and imaginative celebration of color and queerness. With a keen eye for detail and a focus on capturing small fragments of the human experience, this is a piece that prompts a reevaluation of one's own creativity within the realm of the personal.
