Increasingly intrigued and enchanted with the idea of working with archive, I recently found and digitised the only two VHS tapes I have of myself and my family. The above is a still from ‘What was. What is. What will be. Pt 1’ – the first in a series of short, experimental works I plan this year, where I took footage from one of these tapes – a shared birthday party with myself aged 8 and my brother aged 10 – and overlaid it with an unsettling soundscape, distorting and challenging the act of looking on the past with nostalgia.
