A Cloverleaf Interchange (2017) is a work for video and live performer.
It has been performed at Mills College, Pro Arts Gallery, Aurora Providence, and the Lightfield Film Festival.
SYNOPSIS: A driver and passenger misread a highway sign, sparking a sequence of dreams in the passenger and a sequence of daydreams in the driver.
“Consumed by the memory of the dream,
the driver's indecision goes unnoticed by the passenger.”
"It was a simple expression of anxiety, the passenger thinks. But what terror I felt before that undifferentiated mass. And how immobilized I was.”
“How like a shackle it was, the restraining force of that expanse.”
“I am obedient enough for dressage. I am calm enough for reining.
I am docile enough to stand before an open gate.”
“Yes, I am acquiescent. I am compliant.”
“Do not be afraid that I will run off, for I am under your control and command.”
“And in exchange for my subservience, you will cover me with blankets, you will shoe me with iron, you will shelter me.”
