I Have a Pebble in my Shoe
This video came about thanks to a collaboration with my father, as the prototype of a generation born without telecommunications, a generation that lived unaware of technological evolution. He is confronted with a commonly used object within easy reach of everyone: an MP3 player. The instant he comes in contact with the object he learns of its existence and its function; I limit myself to filming and documenting his reaction. At first the object as such is held in hand with near suspicion; then, possibly because the choice of a song by Natalino Otto reminds him of his youth, awkwardness is overcome. Feeling increasingly at ease, my father ends up singing along.
