video by Nathanial Bellows

Nathaniel Bellows is interested in narrative – he is a writer, musician and illustrator – and uses his work to explore the realms of memory, particularly the mysterious process of recollection. Remembering one image or event can evoke a variety of seemingly unrelated things, each existing in the subconscious by its own elusive rules. What are the associative patterns the mind invents to render our past in such unexpected and beguiling constructions?

This short video features some of these preoccupations: one thing morphs into another, without definable pattern or sequence, yet all the components of a story might be here, waiting to be assembled and interpreted by the viewer.
