Mutability of memory

 

Presence is defined by its absence and memories of the past are dictated by the present. Although no object is counted on more for it mnemonic technology, a photograph is not inhabited by memory, but rather produces it. A fugitive testimony to a moment lost, the image painted by light counterfeits an instance. The mutability of our understanding of history unveils the role imagination and photographs plays in remembering. In delineating the lived experience of one, one can tap into collective memory of many. Interested in transient spaces, this series explores how objects wear time, details inevitably becomes mysterious and banality acquires an aura through its universality.
