A voice is telling a story and addresses the viewer personally but shows more and more inconsistencies as it proceeds. In fact it is constructed from fragments taken from stories people wrote down online because nobody else would believe them what happened to them. They have different content which becomes more obvious as the text proceeds.

The video shows the artist‘s hand in front of the camera creating an abstract space interrupted by occasional movements of the hand that recalls the presence of a physical body which is creating the image. The statement in the title connects notions of corporeality and imagination both suggesting and preventing immersion. During that the lighting of the video image changes several times implying a narration. Animations occur now and then, reminding of an artificial, computer generated space. They are accompanied by sounds made from recordings of a domestic environment.



I APOLOGIZE IF ANYTHING I SAY HERE BOTHERS YOU.
I WARN YOU THAT IT GETS VERY GRAPHIC …

I’VE BEEN LOSING SLEEP BECAUSE OF THIS... THEY THINK IT IS A JOKE BUT IF YOU THINK…



I’VE BEEN SO NERVOUS …
I’M GLAD YOU’RE HERE NOW. YOU PROBABLY WONDER WHO THIS IS



DAMN THAT’S CRAZY. I KNOW. THAT’S WHY I NEVER TELL THE STORY.
THE THING IS THAT I REMEMBER BEING IN AN ABANDONED CAR
