LUCY was found in Ethiopia. She's considered to be the eldest human being ever discovered. She was born about 3,5 million years ago. In the video "LUCY", A young girl lays in a pink bed together with a pink felt doll. The girl is about ten, eleven years old. The doll has the same size and physionomy as the girl has. It may be her alter ego, or it may be the girl that soon will be a woman, Or maybe it's just the last doll a mother sewed for her daughter. The light trough the video evolves from sunlight until late evening light. The contact between the girl and her doll is fading away slowly. There are at least two fragile images to be seen: the one of a growing up girl, and the one of a childhood icon.
