Focusing on the moment all reality TV competitions have in common, Somewhere Only We Know provides a skillfully assembled montage of contestants' faces at the instant when they have been eliminated from the show.

Creating a particularly modern study of a psychological—and cultural—state, the video then seeks to find a way to transcend the condition that the contestants are stuck in. Chicago-based artist Jesse McLean, who received the emerging experimental media artist award at the 2010 Ann Arbor Film Festival, visited the Wexner Center in February 2011 to show several of her videos.
