Family Recreation No. 1
This video project tells a story of home through the fictionalization of memories, characters, and settings over time. Recreating family is an absurd task because our perceptions of family are mere constructs, projections of the self. We are incapable of capturing even our closest companions’ true identity. With this realization the characters begin to switch roles, insinuating a continuation where each actor plays each character. This illuminates our condition of isolation; even in family, the individual plays each character, narrating their own version of the story. It also illuminates how the story of home is written. We instinctively compose our individual narratives, and they coexist, collide, and combine with our companions’ to weave the collective story of home.
