This is a sculptural video installation about re-encountering memory, set in a space big enough for a few people to comfortably fit.
I wanted to push on the aspects of memory and its infrastructure that are hazy, messy, unknown. I'm using footage from family videos, setting scenes from different generations against each other. The installation itself is a wooden reflecting pool with four partially-submerged angled mirrors, each of which throws a different video onto the walls. The pool is surrounded by eucalyptus, a plant whose scent is tied to memories from before I really remember anything.
Two of the videos are from my own childhood, and two are from my father’s. In each pair, one video represents an intact memory and one signifies an un-rememberable event.
