Maternal bond

In the video, the impression of mother is described from a third person, the grandmother.
The mother and daughter of the previous generation and that of the modern reflect each other.
Based on vague impression, grandma measures the difference between the two, mistaking the appearance of the daughter and the grandson.
The face in that photo didn't exist in a particular place in the timeline, it was the mother’s ,grandmother's, family's, prior to her own soul.

The relationship between mother and child not only shares the bloodline, but also reflects historical context, growth experiences and family backgrounds.
The youthful appearance of the mother is reinterpreted with the identification of the child, using the photos as a medium to reenact the past.
The child plays the role of inheritance, imitating, internalizing, reconstructing.Using 3D modeling digital technology to reconstruct the past scenes, giving the viewer an additional illusory guidance toward time awareness.
