'Decision Making (A Triptych)' is part performance, part documentary, and part experimental narrative. Each section centers around the activity of jumping, and proposes a connection between the arc of a jump, and the arc of a decision. This piece deals with time and process, with the use of minimal language (only seen on the title screens that begin each section). The actions of each section are stretched to their limits as a means for dissecting the psychology and emotions that accompany our daily struggle through the banal details of our lives.
