Le Premier Cycle

Video study concerning the random nature of privilege.

The First Cycle is a dry yet playful demonstration of the cruel absurdity of human privilege. Two middle-class North American white women measure their luck against each other systematically and come to no conclusive result. The work affirms the notion that entitlement is unfair and absurd. Presenting privilege in this manner attempts to evoke empathy for those who have gotten the short end of the stick.
