Scratch and Sniff is an animated video that illustrates a retrospect of the years 1971 to 1983, the years when I was growing up. The film makes sharp turns between short memos from my own life, and reports of different criminal offences from the same period of time. This puts my innocent and trivial childhood memories side by side with the cruel reality of the outside world, and creates a different perspective of this passed time. To give the work a more documentary feel, the images are made to look more like they came from a photocopier rather than being drawings.
Scratch and Sniff currently only exists in a Swedish version.
