Tiny video installations that combine home movies and found footage with little mock-ups to create intimate memory souvenirs.
The memory of the world is experienced through objects, images, and their traces.
For a few years now, I've been creating my own super 8 and 8mm film found footage archive. I use this material in different ways and formats, such as film, video installations, and interactive narratives. Through my work, I try to represent our mediated memories and to render visible the tension between remembering and forgetting.
For little memories I’m working with the concept of scale to create miniature, intimate video installations using home movies and found footage. Little mock-ups and found objects are combined with projections and video mapping to create intimate souvenirs that reflect on how memories are brought back to us. They are set up in corners, and in such way that one feels that has found them instead of them being displayed as an spectacle, again playing with the notion of intimacy and treasure that memory entails.
Each piece is a self-contained object (with its video, sculptural part, and small projector) and I will present the series in my first solo show in Brooklyn on April.
I’m quite advanced in the production, and some of the finished pieces have been shown in other exhibitions,but now I want to present them all together for the first time. So, even though they are tiny, because each of them uses it’s own projector, they become a bit expensive. That’s why I need to raise funds to buy a pico-projector (a small projector with built in memory) for each piece and to cover some productions costs such as the metal brackets that I have designed to hold these projectors and materials for some of the mock-ups.
