Proverbs is a long-term multimedia project involving a combination of audio alongside still and moving images that seeks to engage with the contemporary landscape of Uganda while exploring its layers of memory. While the proverbs themselves exist as a result of concentrated wisdoms based on ethnic experience, the images here do not attempt to portray the age-old wisdoms. Rather, they seek to create a platform which might allow them to be re-imagined. Wandering through this unfamiliar landscape, the images linger on the people and its landforms, meditating on their relationship to their own environment. Fluid in approach, there are no fixed stories to tell, or no conclusive outcomes to communicate, rather an overarching narrative which seeks to consider how place is experienced, not only for its aesthetic values, but equally for the layers of memory and history that it holds.
