Lifeline, 2011, Katina Bitsicas – tinycinema

Lifeline utilizes the destructive emotions of personal incidences to provide a platform to finally speak out about these issues. The viewer is confronted with the possibility of the end of a life in this piece, but is physically separated from the subject experiencing this. There is however, a direct connection from the viewer to the subject, which is the thread. By unraveling and unknotting this thread, which is sealing my mouth shut, I am then finally able to speak and let go of the past.
