supplement (2002)

“Where’s the milk?”   she says, as lumps of flesh are piled and spilled across a battlefield of absence and ennui....  So begins the peculiar tale of a woman’s search for epiphany at the hands of a rolfer.  Featuring extraordinarily lucid performances in a provocative and sensual multimedia production, supplement  looks for the connective tissue in a world of imploding dissolution and asks: “are you ok?”

“An obsessive concern with visual detail and tropism toward multimedia collaborative work make Moss, a native of Washington State who’s lived and worked here since 1979, a good bet to confuse and delight you”
