Disparities between gender become problems when personal choice is infringed upon. In each of these works, we begin with a structure agreed upon by each party, and depart into an interaction with undeterminable results. Our hands are clasped together holding a mark making implement. Our other hands are both gripping a single video camera. Together we play roles of cooperation, submission, and/or domination. I am the constant, the right hand through each drawing, setting a baseline to draw comparisons between each participant. Physical, mental, and emotional interaction is recorded in this series of drawings. At times power struggles form. In others a more sensitive approach occurs. With each participant, a direct relationship is witnessed.
