Elevators is a video project that I used to reconstruct a memory involving the elevator in my childhood building. In this case, the elevator is used as a metaphor to paint a picture of the conditions of public housing buildings in this country. The video uses found images as well as my own family archive to tell the story about the day in which I learned that not all elevators are created equal. As I would come to learn, the environment around me didn't necessarily reflect the ideals of my eight-year-old life.
