“Head Room,” is a short animation based on interviews of family members describing remembered rooms. The visual language of the film is more symbolic than realistic, like signposts leading us through unknown territory. When conceiving the film, I thought of how often my family has moved, how often many people move, and how those rooms still exist inside of us. I was also moved to question how new mapping techniques are changing the ways in which we perceive and remember our space. As a cultural fixated on the representation of the physical world, Head Room, brings it back to the personal level to remind us that our spaces are inhabited by people, by us.
