My video explores this with a subject who suffers from a mental disability and her traversing a landscape with what we throw away and abandon. These mirror her experiences being treated as if she is no longer viable to daily society. Empty buildings, homes and items that all have a story and a past to tell but only speak to those who accept listening. She finds another person in her environment, someone who is there because of the same reason and offers acceptance. Acceptance is not charity but rather it is the key to understanding. Understanding brings us together as a society and no one should be left out with our refuse.
