750ml

750ml, 2017, single channel video, 8 minutes and 34 seconds

What if the scale of emotional well-being was systematically measurable (at) 1000ml, 750ml being the optimal level in which to maintain a euthymic placidity?

Euthymia: being a position of mental neutrality, a steady and untroubled state of mind, held precariously in the balance by attachment, complication and chaos.

750ml seeks to examine the emotional scale required of a wom*n (in today’s world) by taking the observer on a journey exploring the mundanity of the everyday, the quiet agony of emotional pain and the relief of connection and understanding.
