How to represent the substrate of memory, its shape and its visual mutation?
Memory is a space that is constantly recreated by our experiences. A parallel, otherworldly, invisible place where we go, sometimes consciously and other times, inevitably. The photos of our past mutate whenever we bring them back to the present; they are doors that allow us to interact with our memory, this intangible place. I believe that our memory is like a network of images where our identity is held, and it contains shapes that are beyond our understanding. We live in the middle of these parallel worlds in which sometimes the evocation saves us with the same force it terrifies us.
In this process, I used photos from my childhood that later were merged into a double exposure with more recent personal images to give shape to the intangible.
