Synopsis

Set within the time frame of two defining American calendar dates, Independence Day and Thanksgiving in 2008, video art piece ONE AFTER consists of 17 one-minute segments depicting nature during the first minute of every single execution that occurred in the state of Texas in those months. Without any textual or verbal narration, ONE AFTER approaches the topic of capital punishment from a meditative standpoint, leaving the interpretation of justice, the establishment of harmony and the execution of morals to the viewer.

Produced in association with Triple8Park Pictures.

ONE AFTER premiered on october 10, 2009 – the world day against the death penalty – at Openhouse Gallery in new york.
