Director Statement

I was a quiet and shy child. I would also be lost in my own world a lot. I would often look at an object and associate it with a memory. I would then jump from one memory to another and get lost in that process for a while.

As an adult, I was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder… heavy on the obsessive. It seems that there are some memories, no matter how mundane was hard to be let go of. A curse, but perhaps turned into a blessing, till this day, any object can trigger a memory for me.

I believe that every memory a person has, even the ones that seem like they have no significance have a bigger meaning. That’s why we held onto them for so long.
