"C" equals "satisfactory" as a grade in school. "C" is the middle of the piano keyboard. "C" is average. The norm. Nothing exceptional and nothing horrible can be represented with "C".
The first part of my video is a time lapse exploration of the unbelievable, almost magical possibilities inherent to early life. The second part of the video is a real time, systematic cut down of those possibilities and that life.

When we are young we are told we can become anything we want. As adults our dreams are often cut down to paying the rent, buying groceries and getting by. Often our lives and our person hood develop into something, which can be represented by "C".
