Children’s rhymes are coupled with amateur home videos, creating a commentary about family, nostalgia and memory. Most nursery rhymes are used innocently to develop language and entertain; yet their origins are dark. Individuals make home videos to capture their own fantasy of family. The pairing is intended to create new memories, surface forgotten moments, and perhaps reclaim or reconstruct memory. The video is silent and meant to be read like a book.
