"Reality is precise; memory isn't"
Jorge Luis Borges, In Praise of Darkness
A memory is a recording of senses with the mind as the medium.
When a memory is recalled it is played back in our heads, but never as exact as the originally experienced moment. This makes human memory a volatile storage medium, subject to transience (degradation of memory with the passing of time). Conversely, digital audio/video recordings are theoretically immune to this decay caused by aging.
'Memory Fragments' explores recordings as memories by taking samples (sound, video, found objects) of a physical space and then placing them in an imaginary process of transience that slowly erodes the digital recordings until disappearance.
It will be presented at MADEiRADiG Festival 2013.
