Memory Type II. Light box with analog optical filter. 33 x 33 x 6 cm. 2019
Memory Type explores the tension between memory understood as “digitally encoded file” and memory as “lived experience”, through a formal approach based on the use of the aesthetics of computer screens from the early 1990s. Digital information strings overlap and merge with texts that refer to specific personal memories, in a set of fragments that create an undifferentiated whole. This overlapping seeks to be the testimony of the growing invasive nature of digital technologies in the field of human experience, but represented by analog techniques. All this creates a melancholic-nostalgic atmosphere, reinforced by the images chosen in the compositions: lonely characters, contemplating distant horizons or in meditative attitudes, are a way of codifying the state of existential solitude to which the “information society” paradoxically submits us.
