The audiovisual production consists of an amalgamation of discovered and self-captured 8mm film footage, seamlessly intertwined with digital video, and further accompanied by my original minimalist guitar composition, performed on an instrument that I personally constructed at secondary school.

I sought to create a work of art that would reflect both my acceptance of mortality and my appreciation for the tenacity required to endure life's many struggles. The piece incorporates layers of found footage, video, and sound, symbolizing the interwoven complexities of existence and the diversity of experiences that comprise the human condition. Ultimately, it represents a personal triumph, a testament to my reconciliation with the inevitable uncertainties and misfortunes of life.
