Stirring up emotional sediment through making of a previous project led to a meta-loss composed of hazy-half feelings and an emptiness without form. "Hiraeth" is a Welsh word for "beyond homesickness, incorporating the pining for a home, a figure, even a history that may never have actually existed in order to experience a deep sense of incompleteness tinged with longing." (c. Apr. 2013) It is an ongoing project, shot digitally. The softly raw notions made visual are made apparent when taken individually and as a whole.
