Video

Mosi ke o ne… focusses erasure and deals with the question of whether it is possible to restore what has been lost, essentially questioning if it is possible to reverse time. Can lost knowledge be reclaimed? Can time be reversed? Is it necessary to reverse time? The video connects a recovery of a lost history to the recovery of a personal self. The digging up of bones, treasures and a restorative fire. The video taps into a well-established visual archive of using a book to signify knowledge and fire to signify destruction.
