meandbillybob.com is somewhere between a fan site, a meditation on mediation, and an attempt to rewrite oneself into an ideal world that doesn't exist. Artist Jillian Mcdonald has superimposed herself opposite actor Billy Bob Thornton in several short scenes from his various films. The scenes are in slow motion and an intimate country ballad (written and performed by Billy Bob himself) provides their soundtrack. The site lacks an artist statement, inviting the casual visitor to mistake Mcdonald for a delusional Thornton fanatic. Far from being cynical and campy, the overall effect is unexpectedly sad and poignant. - Curt Cloninger
