Untitled A Tape About Memory

1985, 04:00 minutes, colour, English

“I wanted to make a tape about memory, not just ‘about’ memory. I wanted to re-create the actual sensation of memory through texture, colour, mood and movement. I also wanted to examine time in relation to memory and visual experience. With memory, time can be expanded or condensed; it is generally perceived subjectively. Remembering is a distinct effort to collect again what one knows, but memory can be deceptive and past events may be disordered upon recall. In the animated and re-scanned sequence at the end of the tape, the woman exists dislocated from any actual concrete space. She also exists dislocated in time.” -S.R.
