HIRAETH explores temporal, visual, and auditory disturbances as they relate to memory, specifically memories of my late father who--in times of personal struggle--was someone upon whom I would turn for comfort, counsel, and company. In his absence, I am filled with a kind of homesickness. A longing for something to which I can never return.
Step inside the experimental world of HIRAETH where you are the traveler, searching for something you will never find, and to which you can never return.
