I wanted to make a home movie, or rather, I wanted to make a 'home'. For the past four years, I have lived in three countries and eleven? houses, always with the next place in mind. This period in Japan is the first time I have stayed in one house for more than six months. Yet, with the transience of the last four years I am still unable to distinguish between thinking, remembering and seeing. When was I last at home? Am I at home now? I'm not sure what to look for.

I wanted to experience the ordinary comforts one finds in one's 'home country'. Living abroad, I think I have deprived myself of the familiar, mundane, banal and ordinary-every-day, to the extent that I am unsure of what it looks like. Perhaps in D.I.Y., I will find something ordinary.

D.I.Y. is a 'home movie' in the literal sense too. It was shot, processed and edited in and around my house. Most of the shots are external and the brief time I went inside resulted in a confused, almost violent scene of domesticity.
