Synopsis Program Note
Home is a concept that is embedded firmly inside of me even though I am far away from it in terms of physical distance. I do not want to surrender to the trap of staying at home without first trying to figure out if it is the best option for me. Instead of missing someone or some places, I go visit and revisit them whenever possible.
Home is firmly embedded within me, even though I am separated from it by physical distance. As I leave home and travel abroad, I search for the true definition of home. She try to return whenever possible rather than missing someone and imagining a certain place. The narration and images about home and space in this experimental work leave a lasting impression.
