Bill Horrigan's piece on two videos, Consider Anything, Only Don't Cry by Helen de Michiel and Let's Play Prisoners by Julie Zando, begins with statements by both artists regarding their respective works, followed by a statement by the author giving the reason behind the choice of the two videos. The author attests that that the videos are 'essayistic' in complementary ways and proceeds to describe the ways the videos are as such. Horrigan then goes on to question the labeling or categorization of "essayistic," and the practice of taxonomy when it comes to independent media.
