These promotional videos were commissioned by the record label as a way to generate interest in the Artist with stipulation of not showing the artist. The concept was to create a sense of intimacy and mystery by using recordings of Caroline divulging personal feelings and interests but illustrate them as a form of visual poetry. A discarded cigarette to illustrate the feeling of rejection a cactus to show emotional defense mechanisms. The camera can never quite see her, can never quite grasp what it is looking. Mysteriousness. Intrigue. Interest.
