I love, I hate memory / recollection

  • I love _____ , I hate _____
    memory / recollection
  • I'm obsessed with the idea of memories and carefully preserving them through physical means of journals, messages, objects, notes; but there exists a disconnection between how I experience these memories and my ability to remember them truthfully. Because of this, moments then become obscured by my inability to recall them. 
  • This piece is an exploration of that ambivalence. Text pulled directly from different sources, including journal entries, messages, and phone notes, are digitally embroidered on fabric and mounted on the wooden window structure. Hand embroidered words on scrap fabric are tied over each frame, hovering over and concealing what is underneath.
