"Two" is a video artwork featuring a disabled-non-disabled relationship of a transgender couple. through their relationship, the video examines essences and identities that are mainly embodied in the body's territory - issues of strength and weakness, intimacy and distance, control and dedication, dressing and undressing.
the video also tries to examine the qualities of intimacy expressions revealed in their daily mutual help and through them to wonder about issues of consent in an array where one body is subordinated to the other's actions while the other is bound to the first.
