Without previous knowledge, participants were asked the question, "How do you enjoy your life?"
People responded with different interpretations such as, "Are you happy?" or "What do you do that makes you happy?" Some answers are short & to the point, while others delve deeper into themes and questions of happiness in current contemporary culture, such as feelings of entitlement, time management, the necessity of mental and physical wellbeing and our human need for love and belonging.
This is my first video attempt after finishing art school. I apologize for many of the shots being over exposed. Initially I thought I would edit the video in a less straightforward way and didn't know I could manipulate the exposure levels later. In the end, my volunteers responses were so thought-provoking & compelling that I decided to edit it very simply, with straight cuts.
