Corridor Walk

Corridor Walk is a single take looking down at my feet pacing the length of a corridor in
Manhattan Psychiatric Centre.  My voice counts the steps in an attempt to measure its length.  
Perhaps I¹m trying to measure myself in relation to the building; trying to comprehend its scale,
which seems in a different register to mine.  It feels out of scale both physically and emotionally,
too big to establish any sense of myself.
