“Graham (aged 8)” Memory box demo
“Graham (aged 8)” is an attempt to explore the notion of photographic memory, or lack there of. A demo installation, in the form of a Victorian viewing box, housing a digital display. The author presents this work as a personal journey, an autobiographical undertaking, which formed part of his research and practice during his Masters study in Digital Imaging and Photography. The work as a result could be interpreted as a viewpoint of one individual, but the intention is that through engaging with the piece viewers are encouraged to reflect on their own histories and archival habits.
