Part of a trilogy that started with Grey's Lullaby, Tongue Tied was shot and processed at E.T.C. and set aside for three or four years. It deals with an artist on a voyage and is reflective without being too serious. I arrived at this place, got lonely and had to be creative and artistic immediately instead of missing my family. It is in black and white, and uses a strobing grey pattern of digitized image.

Tongue Tied a été tourné et produit à E.T.C. pour être mis de côté pendant une période de trois ou quatre ans. Ce vidéo n'est pas austère, même si son propos consiste à livrer au spectateur les pensées de l'artiste au cours d'un séjour à l'étranger. Cette suite de la trilogie entreprise avec Grey's Lullaby combine des images en noir et blanc et des images obtenues par un "strobing grey pattern."
