source site An early short film/ video experiment that I created about the palette of memories that we share as individuals and collectively as a society through our exposure to media. Shared images from television, popular culture and films mix with our own personal memories to create a kind of hybrid shared experience of our past.
ea happy forex I was concerned with the ‘choreography’ of the video edit and have looped and overlapped significant images from my childhood and my father’s childhood captured by my grandfather who worked as a cinema projectionist in his youth, and became an avid collector of memories using his Super 8mm camera throughout his lifetime. I was interested in the notion of a ‘ digital collage’ and how we play and replay memories in our minds as we do with digital media – a kind of cataloging our memories by ‘sampling’ and ‘looping’ important images, in effect, weaving new from old and selectively choosing which images to take forward with us into the future. This I believe is evident in the subjective nature of our memories and our selective nostalgia of the past.
