an examination of the human search for coupling and uncoupling that using tugging, push and pulling, hidden, subtle, aloof partner manipulation.
"I wanted to look at relationships in my work... if you watch Seinfeld or Sex in the City, you see stories of The Tale...people looking for that ultimate partner, and they are so blind about it that they can't see what's in front of them. everyone is searching of the ideal- the ideal relationship, car, computer, presenter, theater relationship. Everything is supposed to be so ideal now, that we forget to just be present." -Reggie Wilson
