“All we have is the world we create in our head, and if that's not reality, then nothing is reality. We are left in a world of our own making and that is perfectly fine with me.”

The title of the exhibition is borrowed from the infamous series finale of the television show St. Elsewhere and its subsequent theory about the mind of Tommy Westphall, a fictional character in the series. By emphasizing Westphall's multiverse in the world of television, I show how the moving image has constructed, altered, and influenced my own reality.

The work in The Last One brings to light the vanishing boundary between our world and the cinematic and televised world. In the end, we are all Tommy Westphall, constantly searching for truth but never quite getting there.
