Silence of the Past
This project explores memory and identity of fading childhood memories within landscape and interior spaces.
The dusky light at nightfall, leaves slowly moving in the breeze, stillness in the forest. I close my eyes and slowly moments come back to me, little flashes from long ago. The pull of this place is strong, bringing me back to seek out traces of my family, long gone. Only the echoes of my memories to keep them alive. Slowly I wander through the house that I thought of, or still think of as home, now an empty shell, devoid of the familiar items I knew as a child, objects, sounds and smells. Now there is silence, the unfamiliar feel of the familiar as I try to make connections with the small fragments left behind.
