Apologies

This began as a graduate class exercise with Erica Beckmann at Massachusetts College of Art: one action (Apologies) with two props (coffee & cigarettes) in various scenes. I could not stop! Years of apologies went by and two nervous breakdowns as a result. Now I am stripped of my neurotic guilt and only apologize when necessary, not for the trivial or automatic apology.
