Bill’s Sweet Life

Information Technology has opened up an infinite realm of free advice. But with all the Ted Talks, online horoscopes, and overabundance of health and wellbeing sites, how do we just get good ‘ol plain advice on life?  Call home of course. 

Bill’s Sweet Life is an intimate, and slightly awkward mentoring session between the artist and her father on how to achieve The Sweet Life. Though created in a contemporary medium, this video simplifies its presentation down to a single frame recording with a background conversation held over the phone, signifying the act of taking a step back from technology and enjoying a brief return to a grass roots approach to life.
