We weren't prepared for this (weather). A conversation between you and me. A reflection of the time spent this year. We adapt to the ever-changing weather. Moments are lost, fast and slow. The work contemplates the reliability of memory in relation to the encounter; an exploration of the relation between studio artefact and film archive. Looking inwards at local weathers. An entanglement of space.
