To be homesick and to be sick of being at home-occasionally at the same time. - (Glenn Albrecht 2005) It sounds contradictory, but it is also the present that we are experiencing. Where is the home we are looking for? What is our spiritual longing? with the pandemic, our lives have changed dramatically. Digital virtual spaces have taken over our social life. Will contemporary nostalgia be affected by technology, and what kind of nostalgia will it present? ‘Nostalgia Echo’ focuses on this personal and collective yearning in the creation of anxious scenes of both nostalgia and imagination. My audio-visual experiments aim to open up a vision of a past that haunts and informs a present reality where analogue and digital, physical and psychological combine in acts of repair and reimagining.
