Cocotte” by Paul Botelho for the #MNMF2018

 
Created with Russel Chartier, “Cocotte” explores the fabric of memory through multilayered video and audio. The work develops the metaphor of an ocean of memories where fragments of childhood, love, and loss are intermingled together weaving a complex tapestry forged from the moments that make up our lives. The piece examines the transmutation of time and cyclic nature of the human condition through a portrayal of the multilayer.
