P2 (blackstrap) is the second in a series of three video installations from the Passional series. It is a single channel video installation on a continuous and seamless loop. The video component depicts two mouths; one cloaked in molasses while the other is clean. A Black strap of molasses springs from one mouth across the screen through the frame, landing between the lips of the opposite mouth. As the molasses flows, there is a brief moment of synchronization wherein the two mirror each other’s movements only to have the exchange unravel on the opposite end. Using the same footage reversed and mirrored on the opposite side of the screen the two mouths become trapped in a perpetual exchange continually slipping in and out of sync with each other.
