Description

To remember is to recollect an event or moment in the past. There --> Here examines the complex process of recollecting, how it is quite literally to re-collect. When a memory is accessed it is pieced together bit by bit. Details of the past event are collected from the annals of conscious thought, where they lay dormant since the event, waiting to be recalled. The focus of There --> Here is my own recollection of a day I spent wandering in a forest. I contrast two- and three-dimensional media to explore the complex process of remembering, examining the difficulties we face when attempting to reconcile a remembered past event with the immediacy of the here and now.

This installation is accompanied by a small series of photographs and a collection of writings.
