The five videos included in this screening – all work by artists who live and work in the San Francisco Bay Area – might be characterized by means of associative connections having to do with edges and frontiers. Moments of deviation are made possible by the rough and loose at the edges of rural decorum, childhood or cronehood, legal precedent, gender, identity and settlement.
