Thai Alphabet Has 34 Letters | Documentary Video

Thai Alphabet Has 34 Letters is a documentary video by Apichris Chotichoey, exhibited in CMD Degree Show 2014 ‘CMD Deconstructed’ at Mongkol RCA Studio, 16-18 May 2014.

Thai urban lifestyle shifts from living simply nearby a canal to live in a complex city. Changing affects people to live faster.
The rushed pace and the convenience life make some rarely used Thai consonant alphabets, disappear from the native’s memory.

Director’s Statement:
Realizing culture is present, I simplify the representation of my work into transportation and communication in Bangkok, mainly captured daily life at Siam Paragon – Central World.

This video encourages you to be with present.
Things change by time. Nothing lasts forever.
