Lacuna is an autobiographical body of work exploring memory's imperfections through the loss of childhood memories; now completely irretrievable, this phenomenon has left a substantial empty space where they were once present. The conversion of originally analogue childhood images into digital files, transforms a memory from artefact to virtual representation. The files are then corrupted intentionally, with the input of information about the photograph in question; what, where, when. Suddenly, an image that had been so familiar purely through viewing time and time again, had become distorted, disorientated, and was struggling to hold on to its original form. The photograph has become a true representation of the constant longing to feel any familiarity of the context within the picture.
