This collection of five shorts includes "These Are The Rules", a frightening incantation of "dos and don'ts" delivered by a red-faced fascist figure played by Hall. Each unique video "song" conveys and elicits a psychological space that is at times beautiful, and often disturbing. This tape also includes: "Fear of Falling", "Sounds of Glass", "Through the Room", and "Leaning Forward Carefully". "

"This tape is quite different from my earlier work in video. In the sense that my earlier tapes deal with the media, its language and the way that affects us, this tape deals with a more internal space and as a result is more sensuous, painterly, and certainly more ambiguous than most of my earlier single-channel tapes." --Doug Hall
