EVERYTHING (Video, 2020) is a video created with fragments of my memories. After living in New York for three years, I’ve realized that my home is stored in my hard drive, the place that I can access photographies of my life in Rio de Janeiro, the city where I came from. These memories are still alive inside me, but the life that I had doesn’t exist anymore. EVERYTHING is a short excerpt from an endless video containing shredded images of my past. Creating this piece helped me understand that I need to build a new home and start to collect new memories. And for now, my past is in the shape of a video.
