What do memories look like? “mmry dfts tm nd spc (memory conquers time and space)” was inspired by my fathers passing. I came across these pictures as we made the collage for his funeral. Like others, after he died i realized there was so much more to say. I used these images and this design as a gesture to create a moment where we could converse, anytime.
This video is made from polaroids of my father and a very small version of myself on the beach in the late 70’s or early 80s. The photos are cut up, repasted, and collaged into a beach with musky ambers, reds, and enlarged particles.
