I Am Sorry [For Your Loss] is a video-performance of the prescribed rites of sympathy. By performing these rites through universal physical gestures, we seek to reach beyond language and cultural barriers, as well as religio-political and socio-economic boundaries. We are ordinary Americans wishing peace for all mankind. It is our intent to express our condolences to all people in the world who have lost family, friends and neighbors to the recent conflicts and disasters. With regard to the pain of others, we would like these rites of sincerity to evoke the healing of deep wounds, in an attempt to bridge the human gaps between us.
