Portfolio > Images + Objects

Images playback in our memory in nonlinear narrative, our need for regimentation makes us reorganize the information into a linear trajectory. Like a jpeg that is averaged and deteriorates each time it is accessed, our memory is averaged time over time and gaps are filled to create clarity. I produce work based on the inefficiency of memory's ability to maintain narrative and create objects that act as surrogates for lost objects in memory. In my work I aim to develop formal sensory triggers that precipitate nostalgic responses from the viewer, in an effort to develop new narratives. I think about objects replacing images in an effort to construct memory. Not artifacts from an event that spark memory, but an object that defines the narrative. Its function, not only to perpetuate the maker’s specific narrative, but to create a narrative for the viewer to translate at will. Each translation is dependent on the autobiography of the translator. Generational influences adjust our response to nostalgia and so each generation responds to the politics of an object differently.
