This Must Be the Place (As Far as My Eyes Can See)

VAV - moving image / Video essay

This Must Be the Place is a video essay recalling memories of arriving in new places. Everywhere the protagonist travels, they identify and recognise patterns and elements. The traveller lands in a distant city far from home and begins a journey of reminiscence which remains blurry, unclear and ungraspable. An experience of digital déjà vu, as if every picture, every location and every word previously seen or read feels strangely familiar. Now that we all share a global network of consciousness, experiences, objects and events, how can we identify and recall the initial source of our memories?
