Finally rediscover your lost memories.

“Synapse (from Greek. syn = together; haptein = to touch, to clasp; thus a connection) designates a functional contact zone established between two neurons, or between a neuron and another cell.

Among the hundred some hours of amateur images that we harvested for When I Will Be Dictator, there were too many to make one film from, however, this overflow was perfect for creating another project, a visual labyrinth in the form of a web experience.

SYNAPS offers you a voyage into the brain, along the synapses and tree-like branches of the Memory Arborescence. In navigating the themes of the Memory, you will be able to regain lost memories in the form of Super 8 scenes. By combining these scenes together, you can recall a memory, associate it with music, give it a name and share it with others…
