Portfolio > momentos suite

This series of prints developed as part of my MFA thesis exhibition entitled "twenty thousand moments."
The subjective nature of sensory perception imbues our experience of daily life with a fundamental incompleteness—because the human brain can only process a limited amount of information at a time, our every moment is always subject to omission as well as misinterpretation and embellishment by the imagination or by emotion.
Each day consists of roughly twenty thousand such moments—defined as the few seconds wherein the brain records an experience. In turn, each subsequent recalling of these experiences is subject to repression, convolution, and dissipation. We rarely remember neutral moments, only those that register as significantly positive or negative. I am fascinated by the notion of the gaps left by these absences of information, these holes within the structure of our past and present lives.
