The concept proposes to reproduce the atmosphere of the past times from Banat, as well as to relive the moment of departure, the moment of migration, from a subjective point of view. Using New Media, the audience evolves from passive viewer to active participant. Thus, a close relationship is created between the public and the art in which the multiple sensory experience is more keenly.

I. FRAGMENTED MEMORIES
What is a memory if there is no one to live it? 8 fragments, 8 memories or 8 audio-visual stories from the past of Banat. The installation proposes to reproduce the atmosphere of those times in Comloșu Mare and is accompanied by a narrative from "Report on emigration, nicknames and steak with stewed fruit” by Monica Stoica. The audio stories are illustrated suggestively, quasi-tautologically, using footage made by Gheorghe Ardelean in 1970.
II. ON THE VERGE
That particular moment filled with emotions when the individual or the whole family is about to take off and cross the verge of the home they leave behind. This interactive multimedia installation proposes to relive the moment of departure, the moment of the migration, from a subjective point of view. Both the frame and the gate, digitally reconstructed, are specific to the rural area of Banat.
