The piece Fall (2013) is a looping depiction of a man falling out of a tree. The loop is cut in such a way so that we only see from the moment he loses his last grip on the tree until the moment before he starts to exit the frame. He is forever caught mid-air, never landing. It is a meditation on control, loss, and loss of control. The character is endlessly looping, with a graceful turn that leaves his level of danger or safety ambiguous.

Note: This piece should always be shown as a looping installation. Specifications are included to display the piece as it was originally, on a CRT television on the floor, however it may also be shown on other monitors or as a projection. It music always be looping, however, and so would not work as a one-time screening.
