Recollection

Heidi Romo

The topic of the work is the transience of life. A sense of loss is present at the most valuable moments of our lives. the moments we spend with our beloved. A moment turns into a memory, a child matures, we all grow old. The video is based on two recollections. Me as a child rowing a boat every summer. A terrible car accident that took place near my children's school one August, not so long ago.
