Documentation of an installation presented at the Senior Art Majors' Open Studio Night at Kenyon College in December 2012. The installation consists of two video loops presented on 4:3-aspect TV sets. The cords and technology used in the installation has been intentionally left in view. The title is a quote from a poem by a Finnish writer Rakel Liehu. It is difficult to translate accurately but means roughly "It is difficult to stand with you back facing the sea."
