The three-part video installation attempts to explore my personal experiences and memories in the style of an experimental documentary. My father, a video camera and I form the three main actors, who are in dialogue with and against each other. The idea for this was sparked a few semesters ago in another project. The discovery of 10-year-old video material, which was recorded by my father with his first camcorder on our last vacation together, served as the basis. The intention was simple: What would happen if my father and I went back to the same place a decade later, but this time I was the one with the camera? Three parts, which are seemingly marked out by three locations and can stand on their own, nevertheless also form a coherent narrative experience in symbiosis, which can be experienced in different ways and on different levels of interaction.
