Memory Image

Fakultät: Medien, Studiengang: Medienkunst / Mediengestaltung (M.F.A.)

Many historians, scientists and artists were questioning the idea of photography not only supplementing the memory or aiding it but also configuring it and replacing. An image that closely relates to a personal memory may come to be associated with that memory and, with time, even influence and change the content of it. When the image plays a part in actually configuring the narrative of memory then the photograph is a memory image truly speaking.

What happens if we give our memory to somebody else to visualize? How would they deal with this,
considering all differences that we have and at the same time taking account the extent to which they
know us? Is it still ours or it is now, due to its changes, belonging to the other person? These are just
some of the questions that we would like to deal with in our work.

Being able to know about each other only by spoken words, we explored the concept of shared memory independent of shared time and place. We deal with the exchange of memories and their reconstruction, possession and enactment - how memories are experienced verbally and reconstructed out of one’s imagination. The project was created through visual media, exploring the possibility of experiencing each other’s past and taking it as our own.

As a unique way of time travel, it is a visual experiment, reflecting the imagination of each other and exploring the ways of remembrance and recollection.
