Memory Machine

2016 - 

 

Memory Machine is an ongoing project where my car functions as a large mobile camera. From its interior I capture the observed world in plasticine outlines, allowing the memory of one place to be relocated and layered over another, whether that be an actual place or through the layering or collision of drawings. The drawings are destroyed from time to time, through melting heat, by the need to wind the window down, by dogs pawing or through my desire for change. Viewers from the outside of the car see my memories in reverse, they never see what it was that I originally observed, in the way I did. Even passengers in the car will see the drawing in a different context, from a different perspective. The lines will never match up again for either the viewers or myself.
