"Jillian's close-up discussions, her almost sexy bedroom intimacy provides us with a way in which to rethink relationality beyond the purely visual, pointing to craft, to textile art, and the handmade and imperfect. Indeed, she crafts an intimacy that is textured, a queer intimacy and relationality that is demonstrated through a mututal knowing. Rather, she talks to us, she talks to herself, like we have been in a relationship a long time, like we are coming home. As funny as these moments are, there is also a serious bedroom comfort mixed with frustration that happens, these are tactile moments in which you cannot necessarily distiniguish touch from affect, or what exactly it is that we are all touching in this video experience, but only that there is some sort of body being invoked.” --Katie Brewer Ball
