I make videos, photographs and installations inspired by the moment when children come into cognition. I draw inspiration from cinema, assimilating techniques from the medium. In this process of describing how we acquire language, I encountered an emotional narrative that is built with recurrent images and objects that activate memories.
I make paper objects from photographs to use them as elements in videos. I project strangeness onto them. They are distortions of reality, what I apprehend as an emotional world. I use simple elements like fruits to build a vocabulary of states of mind. I capture what I call emotional perspective, when what we perceive is distorted by our feelings.
The images I produce are containers for an emotional vocabulary. They are illusions: if I create an image that comes from my memory, and if I share it with my child, that memory would have traveled through time.
