This video is a story told in images accompanied by a text read off screen. This private searching lands upon a memory that is neither a lament nor nostalgia, but is a tool for analyzing the present. In a similar way, personal experience is not meant to be solipsistic but a necessary exchange of ideas and sentiments as well as a stream of consciousness.
