Laylaynay dwells on the daily usage of actions: reading and listening. It tells a story that was first uttered verbally and transcribed later, which stretches a minute story into five minutes of reading. While it forces the spectator to adjust to a slow pace, it also removes the subject of the story (the voice) from the story itself. The video doesn’t contain the character’s voice, but the way her voice is conveyed by those around her.
