4:39 | Found Video | 2016

Collage video considering the themes of anime love as moral (easily identified), real life love as difficult (messy, hurtful) - sex is violence. Anime love is simple and true, often a protection against a gnostic evil bearing down on fragile bodies. Sex (biology) gets in the way of love (spirit). A vision into the repression of my own body.

The video ends with a chimera-fitness instructor at the gates of hell giving advice on proper breathing and being oneself mentally. This, he describes, is far more important than a physical, bodily perfection.
