An old grandfather, a little granddaughter, an old house and some glimpses of memory. She was growing up building hers. He was getting old losing his.
ABOUT THE PROJECT

It was made within Analogue Zone #3 workshop, that was mentored by Michel Balagué and Islam El-Azzazi and organised by LaborBerlin (Berlin) and Cimatheque (Cairo) in partnership with LabA (Athens).
