The larger projected film in the installation covers Seer’s attempts to become a projector. This seems to be the answer to her problems of living life as a camera. Her return to Mauritius with her mother, to find a missing house from her childhood, raises questions about the stability of memory and the impossibility of fully understanding the past. Her idea to give up the past brings on her activities as a projector – to move forwards in time emanating light.
