A narration of an old Okanagan story about the nature of the Earth's beginnings accompanies images of the artist' body, revealed while she is weight-training. In this very figurative self-portrait, a woman's body is 'expanded' to encompass broader cultural territory, it's combination with this creation story invoking a contemporary revisitation of traditional perceptions of identity and connection.
