A video installation in a domestic environment exploring issues of domestic abuse through coercive control and emotional, verbal and psychological abuse. By showing this work in a domestic environment, it brings home more closely the issues that, from the outside, are invisible and, from the inside, are crazy and confusing. This work shows the intense love and hate that often exists in such relationships through an innovative installation. It tests the domestic environment as a valid way of representing work of such nature.
