Where the Heart is -- Nostalgia for "home"

June 19, 2015

In this project I wanted to splice together footage taken where I go to school in Orange, California, and clips from my time abroad in Paris to create the feelings of nostalgia, homesickness, and admiration that I feel for both places. I love every minute of being here in Paris, but there are moments, like flashes in the video, that feel like a distant memory of the home I will be returning to in a short amount of time. Making a home in a new and unfamiliar place provokes an array of emotions that I cannot grasp with words; I think this video helps.
