Memory

Interactive Video Installation, 2005

Memory explores the elasticity of memory as a fluid continuum of time and space, seeking alternative modes of representation; always slippery, indeterminate and incomplete.

The installation uses a meshwork of laser beams and cameras to involve participants in a heist–like plot—only to carve out glimpses of the gallery’s fleeting memory, and with it, the impossible task to navigate therein. Every time a beam of light is crossed, the space captures, processes and remembers. Then the projection surface cracks and gives way to a wispy fabric of fragments from the past seeping into the present—a pitter–patter of memories against a mirror surface. Instead of a clear mirror image however, the visitor is met with an image that has been distributed and fragmented across an imaginary time-space.
