Our first breath, when we are brand new in this world, until our last. Birth, growth, curiosity, friendship, happiness, family, experience, hope, dissapointment, death.
That is our lifetime. We gather layers, experience, learn to decide, be in charge, win and loose, feel grief or joy. We wish it could last forever, although sometimes it is cut short.
The piece is based on the television series “Ævi” that Sigríður Halldórsdóttir produced in collaboration with RÚV.
