Project description: A Tracing in Lighter Colors
The artist uses her aunt's funereal photograph as evidence of a pivotal moment in her family history, attempting to unravel the event with myth, bad memory, and cartoon drawings of rabbits. The presentation is video-based with some animated images but remains deliberately low quality with cheap sound effects.
