Sometimes we put an effort to something that is impossible to achieve. For example, treatment.
My grandmother passed away after being bedridden for two years in hospital. My family thought that grandma’s soul was already gone. Nevertheless, they kept giving a treatment to her. All the relatives visited her and talked to her. Those conversation continued without an answer until she got really sick and left us. During those two years’ treatment, we slowly emptied our minds, letting go of her.
I wanted to revive something that is already gone, even though I can’t. Through this project, I wanted to share the moment when we tried something of which we already know the result. It might touch your old feelings of when you desperately endeavored to achieve the impossible.
