The Exertion of Memory
Candid fleeting moments and notions of memory form the basis of this project. For fear of losing touch of memory, my final piece is an expression of this trepidation. Drawing influence from personal snapshots and social documentary, I realised the difference between the photographic representation of a moment and ones memory of that moment. Memory is a recording of ones emotional response that doesn't capture everything within an experience and distorts over time. The image is the conduit from which memory is communicated and connotes aspects of a life that was, and the transient relationships that fade with it. Concerned with themes of nostalgia for the longing of remnants of the past that embolden the desire to relive a moment.
