I’m just playing at this stage and wondering whether this approach has validity to my next project. All the while I have listened to my recording’s and also subsequent discussions with my twin sister I am troubled by the notion of layers. Maybe it’s the ‘screen memory’ issue that I researched for my dissertation and which informed by BoW. Maybe its because the more I research about memory and its relationship with family history, the more I find that truth is a mediated expression of the fiction we cling to from our past. My mother is no more lying to me than she is telling an unexpurgated truth, I do not believe she is deliberately misleading me, other than to frame herself in a particular and changing light. So an environment that isn’t fixed, neither one thing or another. The quicksand that disables the surety of a fixed contextual reference. One episode unmasking another, either spoken or left unsaid.
Here are a few images:
