queer ama, 2018, time-based media
This work originated from an emotion: saudade: the nostalgia and longing for something or someone which may well never return. In this time-based media work, I focus on the ephemeral and random appearance of memories, triggered by a picture, a sound, or simply a familiar feeling. Inspired by similar stories of emigration, I wanted to portray the nostalgia for one’s country, which only persist and remain alive through those fleeting, bittersweet, memories. With the hope that others might also relate to the warmth of remembering, even amidst the snowstorm.
