I94 (1974) 16mm, color, 3.00 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Erotic

"Intercourse between two people who never appear on the screen at the same time." -- B. G. & J. B. "... for me i94 functions as an emblem of the state of male/ female roles during the mid-seventies. The movement of many women out of the domesticity of marital and maternal roles into the larger world was interlocked with attempts by many men to get back in touch with emotional realities they have frequently ignored while functioning 'out in the world" -- Scott McDonald, Afterimage, 1981
