"Always prepared!" is a moving image piece based on the childhood memories from former socialist Czechoslovakia. It is a return to the experience of the children belonging to the transitional generation of two systems in 1989 and reflexive comparison of this change.

This was my final year work for BA Digital Media Arts at London South Bank University.
