Passing was made in reaction to both the sudden passing of a close friend and to the absurdity of the looming end of the world according to the Mayan Calendar. This video documents a particular zeitgeist peculiar to the fall of 2012. Passing consists of three monologues. There is no music as the artist prefers to avoid melodrama in this instance.
