REMEMBER

Remember is a video based on the philosophical maxim “Know thyself”. 

Remember asks us to think about what we have forgotten and reconsider our needs. 

Trying to bring us back to basics. 

A video of a human skull, colorized from real MRI scan images, shows us images of the brain. 

Our common, complex and sophisticated organ. -see in drive folder- 

Do you remember? 

Do you remember when times were not running… 

Do you remember this could also happen? 

Do you remember them running towards the waves? 

Do you remember any of those people now_ 

Remember the jam jar? 

Do you remember the smell of those flowers? 

Do you remember your other realities? 

Do you remember the possibilities? 

Do you remember the day you put your foot on the ground? 

Do you remember?
