An other-worldly host walks in and addresses you personally, her purpose is to guide you through a series of random accessed memories incorporated with colors and sounds. This host is a mere representation of the “external” world. She has the ability to tune into your mind like a television, and can switch to any channel she wants.

Externalizing different layers of subconsciousness memories by merging visual and audio elements.

 Visual Content & Design 

Some of the raw visual content used, representing significant personal memories that were recorded by phones.

Using these memory footage to create the visual language, building three different max patches to control the effects in real time.

The vocals were mixed to paint an imaginary space for the viewers, by panning around moving from the left side of the ear, to back, to then the right ear. Mirroring along whichever memory the host is guiding the viewers through.
