This series explores the cyclical nature of memory and the impacts of embodied memory across generations. Using old family photos on a slide carousel, I experimented with the technique of projection as a way of interpreting the idea of cycles and generational memory, utilizing the slide projector’s sequential nature to play with fragmentation and progression. I combined old photographs with painted and drawn elements, including painting on transparent films and projecting them onto the surface, using projected images to trace and inspire imagery while rotating the canvas, and combining fragmented surfaces as a projection ground to interrupt the original image. Imagery of water was used to symbolize memory and the cycles of nature that are reflected in the cycles of human relationships.
