Diploma project, ECAL 2017


by Angélique Stehli

I grew up in San Francisco before moving to Europe. It hadn't been clear that we would never return there. All my projects have been linked to that time and place including memory, identity and the idea of elsewhere. Therefore I returned to my eldorado working on an epistolary video mixing different temporalities that connect together like a myth. I engaged a journey along the San Andreas Fault starting where it began both scientifically and personally, recollecting ancient memories but also capturing places that will one day disappear into the Pacific Ocean.
