"Memory Disorder" by Silas Fong

by Annette Finnsdottir last modified Jul 01, 2011 11:13 AM
In this work Silas Fong works with how the images that one sees are associated with the lost and remembered images and imagined ones.
Is there an order for memories?

The first question on my mind is the temporality of memories. Is there an order for memories? I wonder how they are arranged so that the scenes in our mind somehow appear so random. Are they organised according to chronological order or according to the relevance of one’s state of mind? Cinema to me is an art of memories. Cinema works with how the images that one sees are associated with the lost and remembered images and imagined ones. It manipulates the perspective and the perception of time by the audience.

In this work I try to create an experience of memories and imagination by letting moving images appear and disappear. The images mostly depict faces of different people from different times. Footage ranges from telecined super 8 film, webcam, photographs and digital video cameras at different qualities. It is displayed in a web browsing environment in multi channels.

 

Technical details:
-Digital video from telecined super 8 film, webcam, photographs and digital video cameras at different quality
