Common Mistakes is a multi-media installation by Jeanne C. Finley shown at the P.S.1 Gallery in Long Island City, Queens.

Common Mistakes that uses slide images, video tapes and sound to explore themes of disasters. Images of a girl young girl impaling herself, a lecture on lobotomies and mutations at a nuclear plant create fearsome messages similar to one's created in the media and replayed in our imaginations.
