In this project, I tried to visualize a poem that was dear to me for a long time-Burnt Norton by T.S Elliot. It was part of the final assignment of my first year at the Willem de Koning Academy. It's a beautiful, abstract, and quite surreal poem touching on subjects like time, memories, and decisions. I strived to offer it the same visual response by combining a set of videos from my own archive. As for displaying it, I chose to project the video inside a large box where it can be looked at through a hole. For a better experience, I offered a pair of noise-canceling headphones for the viewer. Combining all these visual-auditory elements, I want to offer my audience a secluded moment between themselves and this poem.

Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.
What might have been is an abstraction
Remaining a perpetual possibility
Only in a world of speculation.
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.
Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened

Into the rose-garden.
