A short experimental piece on familial disconnection, homesickness, and longing for connection.
This piece is a compilation of voice messages from my mother. It deals with the issues that come with being away from home. It portrays how mothers are always worried, tired, and concerned for their children. How habitual we are as human beings, and how hard it is to communicate with distance. This piece includes voice messages in Urdu sent by my mother to me over last year. The messages from my mother start with questions and a tone that almost feels robotic and repetitive. The length of the voice messages is almost always 28 seconds. The audio is accompanied by cold visuals that convey emptiness, alienation, and remoteness.
