A Believer is a Doer 

video installation (2009)

A Believer is a Doer explores relationships between faith and action and presents an alternate view of religious fundamentalism by evoking the transcendental nature of Pentecostal Holiness serpent handling.

Filmed at the Church of the Lord Jesus in West Virginia, the video footage distills moments of spiritual reward while alluding to the mystical forces to which the Serpent Handlers surrender during church services.
