Memoria

Memoria

Memoria primarily relates to memory and how it changes over time by use of film and transfer mediums in photography. I've always been interested in the idea of memory and how events are recalled depending on mood, conversation, and time passed since the event occurred. Transfer mediums lend especially well to this idea of transition and change, due to the nature of how the process works. I shoot on film with toy camera first, because the element of surprise fascinates me. The events and memories in my life never seem to go the way that I believe that they will, so why would I expect my camera to move the same way? I take it a step further by combining and overlapping images, then using different types of transfer medium, placing the images onto multiple surfaces. The process of a photograph transfer is different every time that it happens - even if the same image is used multiple times, different things lift and each end up being completely unique. This relates back to my original thought by showing that even when we feel that we can control what we remember, we can't. There will always be gaps, even when we are our most meticulous.
