I am remembering my 阿婆 (grandma) through projections of old childhood swimming videos. Each layer documents her movement throughout the frame as my mother films behind the camera. I'm interested in the ways these memories shaped my childhood.
This project made me realize the importance of family rituals, of reminiscing and engaging with archival imagery. It became a dance with video projection, with an emphasis on movement and bodily forms. I found that in revisiting the past, it allowed for the most powerful recognition of growth in myself, and in the relationships in my life. - 13 minutes ago
