The tragedy of a swing and a chair. 2 min video. 2007 Mauritius.

The tragedy in this video is an imagined mental state, a space between memory and fiction, between the comfort of the home environment and the fragility of an imagined space of thought. The idea of a house for me comes sporadically in terms of my childhood aspirations, of perfection lived in dreams, and facing up to the reality of my everyday surrounding. Still a nomad at heart, I find it hard to settle down. All is in flux.
