Look at The Clouds, a hybrid between film essay and a music video made with found footage of family trips, public domain movies, science, and nuclear defense reels found on the internet, explores nostalgia as created memories.

A remembrance for what we haven't lived yet. A yearning for what we wouldn't live, perhaps. A desire to be a different "persona" living a strange familiarity. But, how can we be others if what we think is what we are? What If we can be others? Wouldn't that erase what we think now? If we can be others, isn't nostalgia a memory of who we were during that second when we wanted to be a new us?.
