The monograph contains a collection of TJ Wilcox films like Strawberry, a work of a fetishized strawberry plant. Ortino tells the story of the pet dog of the Romanoff Princesses who was massacred alongside his owners; while Around the World in 80 Seconds is a tribute to the romance of travel. Other films like Ann, melting polar ice caps, bee-keeping and Humpty Dumpty take as their subjects the artist's beloved stepmother. Linking the Garlands is their melancholic ruminations on innocence, romance and courage.
T.J. Wilcox (born 1965 in Seattle, lives and works in New York) uses a combination of found footage, collaged animation and his own film to make mini-narratives.
