You Were Never Really Here
Every time we recall a memory we reconstruct them differently in our minds.
What does this recalling of altered memory look like. How many viewpoints and timelines can be inside a flat rectangle? Can these flag rectangles with multiple viewpoints and timelines trigger our visual recognition process, similar to recalling a memory?
RAW images were captured through the thick and aged glass of the Boston Commuter Rail window, while I was commuting in Massachusetts before the pandemic.
During quarantine, I began alternating images using image restoration function in Photoshop. I made “restored” images, then patched them into the original RAW images. I created and action in Photoshop and applied the action to the images to randomly generate unique and unexpected results.
This practice gave me the opportunity to explore a shifting relationship with landscapes, place, and time in the early years of being a immigrant to the United States.
