I am overwhelmed with the amount of documentation I have. I am only 20 years old but i have almost 10,000 photos and videos of my teenage years. I think of what I will be able to show my children. This made me think about what we chose to document, to save. I have found many videos from snapchat or instagram years ago that hold no significance to me now. compiling small pieces of footage that I have documented over my teenage years, even though some of these moments were so mundane and there is so significance to me now. I’m thinking about how we as young people decide to document our existence, what moments in life must we save, must we hold on to. By looking at the photos and videos i have that have not gotten lost in cyberspace, I noticed the very special and the very mundane. It is clear that there is curation, which makes me wonder, how do we curate existence? By putting them all my digital memories together to a song, Clair de Lune, that makes me burst into tears for no reason- because I have no real memories w it- and editing it in a cinematic way I am making it an emotional and nostalgic experience. I want to invoke the same overwhelmingly nostalgic feeling i get when i look at photographs of my parents wedding or home videos of my sister and i waddling in diapers. Both creating an emotional connection to mundane moments but also romanticizing my own memories, placing a new importance on mundane documentation.
