2 minute, 24 seconds

Seagate is the name of a gated community near Coney Island where, with her mother and grandmother, Lijn spent the first year of her life. Lijn’s elbow houses the voices of memory: the sea, her breath and her mother’s voice.


Five digital film installations that place Lijn’s earliest memories within different parts of her body.

“Chaos is at first a broken line of being, and recovery occurs through re-experience of continuity.”
