Nothing Is Forever, Or Never

Video, 2021.

"The bare thought is quite bizarre; to have emerged from nothing, to have a name, a consciousness self, deep inner feelings, an excruciating ambition in life and self expression – and with all this, yet to die". – Ernest Becker.

The video Nothing Is Forever, Or Never represents my initial attempt to blend words, images, and sound, creating a portrayal of "being inside a head"—specifically, the mind of someone confronting death instead of evading it. Thoughts and voices whirl within the head, a continuous flux where one idea leads to another, intertwining and occasionally interrupting or completing each other's sentences. This project draws inspiration from literature but also incorporates my personal thoughts and experiences. It revolves around a significant incident involving a dear person impaled by a stake, delving into the inevitability of human mortality and the shared anxiety we harbor about this profound aspect of existence.
