Tom Sherman

1980, 28:00 minutes, colour, English


Shot in Syracuse, New York , produced in Toronto, set in Montreal, Sherman discusses the fictional end of his own life and career in this video performance. Humor continuously interrupts depression, allowing theory to be laid out with bare-bones clarity. 21 inches of video becomes 21 inches of television by virtue of circumstance.
