Ripples

The Architecture of Memory

This is the process of memory making from the point of view of an architectural space

It begins in Berlin, and cities just like it. I look around at the architecture and see the collection of memories in stone, steel, and glass. Generations are connected to each other through those structures, and every cycle brings in new residents, new memories, and ultimately change the way the building looks. The Imperial palace is a great example of how memory can be created, destroyed and then recreated in a new light. Whenever there is an attempt to try and keep tradition, keep with history, the fact that its history’s inevitable layering, that it cannot go back strikes me in a very personal way. New York City is a much more disposable version of the European international cities. In ‘Merica you just throw away the old and get something new, but let us always be nostalgic for the good old days. Days that only existed in our minds. Ripples is a way to take that process of conscious and unconscious memories and memory making, and bring it as a part of the exhibition itself. The images taken from the gallery are introspective as well as extroverted. The only thing that you do know is that the image will change, grow, and evolve. Each time a new pattern might emerge, with every iteration of the show. It is my hope that by then having it exist on the cloud, that then the cloud begins to grow and build its own internal architecture, it’s own memory.
