'This project came about when Bay Area filmmaker Sean Desmond asked me about the possibility of filming me paint on a human body in my Inner Richmond apartment.  It was an exciting idea and I wanted to give it some narrative.  I came up with a lost lover, reanimation tale that would include bits of ritual and ceremony references from across eras and continents.  It was a chance to be visually decadent and expressive in visually communicating the ancient dynamic of lost love. '   Mike Kershnar
