Hoping Helplesslydisquise 8-hope-MPEG-4 Improved NTSC for CD

Hoping Helplessly is an installation that explores the feeling of being vulnerable and the state of hoping for a positive outcome.  The ceramic heads are treated differently with a variation of outcomes.  One is covered in metal leaf; one has been pit fired and the other paint has been poured over it.  Below is a pile of burnt tax recorded ashes and receipts kept for tax reasons.  There can be different possible explanations and hope the audience would read what they need into this piece.
