A single-screen interactive, Memory Clouds ruminates on memory. A floating cloud of ever-changing old family and social photographs is disturbed on approach by a viewer, gently fading and dissipating the closer they come. The work is silent.

 

 

 

 

Memory Clouds : Tim Gruchy


Just as our memory clouds over and disallows us from recalling precisely what happened in the past, so to memories can cloud around us, eliciting deeper recollections and a host of other responses and emotions. The work explores the fleetingness of memory and our inability to control and manage our storehouses of lived experiences.
