『 Why Am I Here?  』


How does an artist work in 2020, when lockdowns have drastically changed our ways of life? For us, the lockdown meant going back to our respective countries to be with our families, escaping London to be back to somewhere we call “home”. COVID-19 enhanced an aspect of contemporary reality which our lives were already intrinsically bound to — the virtual world. Reality is no more designated to specific spaces; it exists in many different spaces contemporarily.

This film is an exploration of such — how does one create “live” art when the live can’t exist? How does one go on creating collaboratively when physical distance is forced upon us? This short film is an exploration on the ideological question of transmedia — is it still an ideological question we are faced with, or are we left with no choice but to create in such way?
