Re-remembered; video palimpsests #1, 2007
Running Time: 3:09 mins

Re-remembered; video palimpsests #1 is a visual exploration of recorded history and subjective memory. Using the palimpsest as a model for this exploration, each layering of imagery and video represents mixed memory, a merging of historical and personal perspectives whose partial erasure and rediscovery recedes and remerges within a media-saturated environment.

Each day, an array of meaningful and arbitrary images are constructed and deconstructed within our minds and all around us. These works act to question the stability of what we call history and memory, what is remembered and re-remembered, fleeting and enduring, troubling and endearing, written and re-written.

The original material manipulated in each piece is a combination of historical and personal footage and photographs. Digital artifacts and effects represent time, obstacles and our inability to erase what has taken place. The overall landscape of re-remembrances depicts our ability to re-present ourselves and the world with our notion of what is actual.
