In "Third Tape" John Erdman wraps a fishing line around his face, causing his features to appear broken up and distorted. By stacking small mirrors on top of one another, his reflection is pieced together and deconstructed. Erdman's face emerges from a pool of water and disappears again. The work is approximately five minutes long.
