Big Enough for the Two of Us
Video & Photo: Philippa Fort
“Big Enough for the Two of Us” is the result of a task to perform wearing helmets connected by a string (a suggestion from a friend we took very seriously).
Life in the helmet is very different from life outside the helmet. In becoming aware of their shared circumstances, Holly finds herself greatly invigorated by the connecting string, which has a comparatively negative effect on Jonathan. Nonetheless he chooses to remain helmeted as to not disappoint his strong-willed partner.
