Relationships, and not just human-to-human bonds intrigue me. "The Date" was inspired by dialogue in the movie “Frankie and Johnny”, where Frankie says, “if I’d wanted a boyfriend I wouldn’t have bought a VCR”. In “The Date”, TV is the Saturday night date. This particular date is comforting, safe, passionate, and more assertive than the woman watching.
"The Date" screened at the Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago, IL, 2004
