Beaming With Happiness
This series is about that moment when a child is overcome with pure joy and it lingers. As adults when a moment of joy happens we tend to let it slip away much too fast. A child is enveloped in this elation and is carried with it. For this series people were asked to provide a memory from childhood when they were ‘beaming with happiness’. These snippets of childhood memories are layered on adopted mirrors through the familiar media of school days, blackboard and chalk. Viewers are invited to take a travel through childhood memories that by the end hopefully will place a smile across their face and ignite some of their own nostalgic childhood reflections.
“Don't you wish you could take a single childhood memory and blow it up into a bubble and live inside it forever?”
-Sarah Addison Allen, Lost Lake
