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.
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.
