I make to remember who we are. I make to remember where we come from.
Memory is my medium.
The world is populated by approximately 7 billion people. This leads to 7 billion moments experienced in each second, equating to more than 221 years occurring every second on Earth as a compilation of all human experience. My work explores this idea on a smaller scale by bringing together imagery to create moments and memories that happened separately, yet simultaneously, to create communal memories that never existed.
The work acts as a record of moments that never happened. Much like a researcher I compile and collate these obsolete moments and materials. I hunt and gather discarded relics to be archived into my work, giving memories themselves a physicality.
Memory and remembering often do not exist concurrently.
I make to remember who we are. I make to remember where we are going.
