'A short film about remembering: about the fragmented moments that are conjured and then fade before my mind’s eye when I daydream. About trying to grasp hold of these mercurial images, describing what they ‘look’ and ‘sound’ like to me.
This film represents part of ongoing research into artistic representations of human memory. I am interested in the phenomena of mental imaging and recall: how and why the mind retrieves particular past moments during reverie or daydream. I hope this film describes something of the nature or sensation of these processes.'
