Paint It Again is a multimedia installation that explores the relationship between time, memory, and place by immersing participants in the home once shared by a woman and her late lover for over 40 years. Like a museum, the house is meticulously arranged and decorated, full of objects like artifacts that hold memories and hint at a life shared in this space and in a sense, at a life that is now gone. A typewriter acts as the entry point for the user to access her memories and space.
