Keep Us Together is a two-channel sound installation juxtaposing the frankness and cathartic immediacy of young adults confessing their student debt against recordings of preachers encouraging us to "focus on the eternal" as per 2 Corinthians 4:18. Anchoring this dialogue is a bed of slowly decaying '70s soft rock; inviting the viewer to question the veracity of the promises of the 20th century which have grown to be familiar but more and more distorted as time passes. As we live deep in the student debt crisis, we have to ask ourselves if the things that go unseen are temporary or eternal?

Special thanks to the individuals who were willing and courageous enough to share their debt with me for this project.
