It is the drive form Nuremberg to the home town of my husbands mother, an hours drive throught a typical Frankonian area and streets, which are handmade renewed. So the pattern of the streets are in various greys and a little bumpy.

It is about the feeling of time and space, if one knows a route very well.
So there is the element of the main street part, which is several times repeated. It is interrupted by little sequences of very unique parts of the route, which is immediately waking up the senses, which are normally in a low level during such a well known route. The main sequence street part is fastening towards the end. Overlapped at the very end by the expected situation of the mother, waiting at home.

So the whole video is about how the memory is participating during such a drive. How the time feeling is relativated to knowledge and memory.
