Tell us the journey from first seeing the prompt to the final creation?
At a first glance of the prompt, I was immediately excited since working with archive is something that interests
me. While reading the proposal I started to think how much changed for me personally and for the people
around me. How moving countries was an impact, and how getting so used to same surroundings can be
transforming and also overwhelming. For me it probably had more joyous moments than to the majority, but
my mind was still restless by what was happening around, especially being in Brazil for most of it.
This gave me the opportunity to relive some of these joyous moments and to remind myself of the changes I
had to do for myself. Also, a reminder of why I left and sought to seek new experiences.
What keeps you awake at night?
What keeps me awake at night is my overwhelming overthinking, where I feel anxious of my and the world’s future, as well as attached to past memories. It keeps me awake to know that the country I grew up in is in such distress and having to see people constantly fight for their lives.
