The impetus for EX came from grief. In the course of a year, Campbell lost his mother to Alzheimer’s and his sister to cancer. But with its dance sequences, non-linear or narrative structure and visual gags, EX isn’t maudlin or saccharine.

Skewed Visions are singularly aware of the intangible realities of space. The most important among these intangibilities is the simple fact that the space in which we live, through which we move, which we use, enjoy, or dislike is always already claimed. There is no such thing as uncharted territory when it comes to spatial propertyship.

In preparation for the project, Kayim produced a short documentary about the small town of Playas, NM. Playas is a training facility used by the military and Dept of Homeland Security to train troops and first responders using the residents as victims in terror scenarios.
