This project seeks to explore the themes concerning the construction of memory. The explorations made in this project are not literal renderings of memory but are often suggestive of the past, tapping into the reservoir of emotion as much as into a store of cognitive knowledge. As the project ran its course, it became more to do with the nature of memory, evading, and forgetting. To acknowledge the massive presence of memory is to acknowledge how important remembering is. Through this project, the student tried to stage the unreliability of memory, capture its essence or structure through mediums such as photography, sculpture, moving images and interactive code. A part of the project seeks an active engagement of the audience whereas the other is for visual engagement. Lastly, the animation work aims to express fragmented yet unified experiences. Materiality and texture of form primarily constitute the expressive part. As this student comes to accept the ever-changing truth and ever-shifting memory with no definite answers, this project remains her inquiry into the nature of memory.
