Walker Assignment

This is an image of a black and white silent video called An Inventory Of Small Deaths by Rivane Neuenschwander.

When I viewed this, I saw lots of bubbles floating around. I was confused because there wasn't anything near it. It was just floating bubbles. The video reminded me about a birthday party of mine when I was younger. It was bubble themed and I had a big obsession with bubbles as a child. When I saw this video, a bit of confusion and frustration but it also made me feel relaxed because the bubbles were floating around, like they were dancing. Questions I had when I saw this was, why choose a video about bubbles, what is so important about bubbles that they decided to do this?
