This special edition of “Memory is a Photocopy” consists of a transparent acrylic display where you can arrange the pages of the Artist Book to create your own version of the memory. With 3 openings, the 3 components of the memory (background, foreground and frame) can be arranged as desired, even mixed and matched to be displayed.
“Memory is a Photocopy” is a project that explores the fascinating nature of memory and how the way our brain recalls experience is always determined by context.
It consists of a ream of copy paper. Memories of the movie “The Seven Year Itch” are printed on translucent sheets and interspersed among the white copy pages. The user can combine these pages as desired, creating different versions of each memory.
Because of the nature of the materials of this Special Edition you can really see the effect of something that fades like memories, something that is not very sharp as it recedes to the back. You can also see how the framing changes the outlook of the content just like context does to memories when they are recalled.
