This screencast (loop) documents an ongoing illustrative research that aims to visually interpret the feeling of yearning as pertains to alienation. To highlight melancholy and nostalgia, the images employ a saturated aesthetic as seen on (east) African media in particular trends starting from 1978 when full colour TV transmissions were first introduced in Kenya. Also of reference are the repetitive motifs found on the popular East African Kanga.
