The video has me disappearing and green-screened into an episode of the popular reality television show, The Bachelor as both a participant and a supernatural empath and healer. I have literally added myself to this narrative to imagine myself being loved, beautiful, desirable, with social currency and of being an important part of life and culture. The sea crashes behind me in tumult. I ask the audience if they are a part of things while I wonder if I am.
