Twins is a short video essay examining a theoretical implication of an image of twins, specifically the secret of multiplicity, and difference. A pair of young female twins turn slowly on a rotating platform, they embrace comfortably and finally they kiss. Holding a heart shaped box of chocolates they resist the audience's cynicism and perversion. A short text appears at the bottom of the frame. This tape was produced as part of "Diderot" - a video magazine p7/20/98 produced by United Media Arts Studies.
