[della serie: minutaggi di documentarismo surreante]
Every 17 minutes, someone commits suicide in the United States. Every 43 seconds, someone attempts one." 17 Minutes is a performance and video blog project. Each day I spend 17 minutes standing outdoors next to a tree. At the end of this 17 minutes I fall to the earth. This ritual offers a place of reflection, the time between. It also deals with the specific circumstance of my own brother's suicide and as a reenactment aims to be reminder of the life I am engaged in.
