This project looks at the complicated emotional terrain of grief and memory, and allows the viewer to control the pace of the story that is being revealed. 
 
Video footage consists of GoPro footage of  short clips of urban and woods scenes. The viewer can advance a text narrative using a button. Meanwhile, sound plays of a tape recorded in 1974 of a six year old girl being prompted by her mother to tell her aunt (the intended recipient of the tape) about the child's daily life. 

An iteration of this work was shown at the 2014  Expo Chicago at the Navy Pier.
