Dates2019 - Ongoing
Memory Bank as the name suggests is the study of my thoughts both then and now. It investigates the relationship I have with myself and often times with the act of photography.
The work even goes as far as exploring various devices used to capture images both artistically or in a practical sense.
The focus of the imagery is my constant frustration with the medium of photography, spending time at home versus being on the road for work, immediate homesickness, past relationships, heartbreak, traumas, family, mental health/illness and the repetitive failings of my memory. What are we able to trust of what has come and how helpful is it to our present and ultimately future selves? An Interrogation of my dreams, imagination and everything that makes up my conscious and subconscious mind.
This distrust is the step off point for the work and has allowed me to explore these themes with flexibility that I haven’t afforded myself. With this blank slate I am able to pull from my archive, recreate scenes from life, explore collaborations with fellow artists and ignore my standard practice to the point where I hope that this becomes how I work moving forward.
