Worcester, MA 196(...)

Viewers enter a space where there are three separate projections accompanied by headphones and a chair. 

I am interested in the relationship between memory and subjectivity. Found and unseen photographs by family members are accompanied by their reactions. Looking at an unclear past that is documented in snapshots, perspectives overlap and contradict. In this piece, the viewer is having to work to remember what they had seen prior, since the audio does not always coincide with the visual. Being mostly vernacular photographs, the film and photos seem joyful, casual, perhaps a representation of an ideal nuclear family. Where does one’s memory enter into a distant film or photograph?
