My History not my memory
My History not my self
Xerox transfer on Japanese paper
10’ x 15’
How do you separate your memory from what you imagined? When does your imagination take over your memory?
My History not my self is an installation of xerox transfer prints on Japanese papers with an enlarged image of a school photograph of female students from my father’s photo album. Enlarged to a nearly life size scale, the entire installation covers a 10’x15’ wall. The size of each print is approximately 11”x 15” and reveals only a portion of each individual. Only the top portion of each sheet is attached to the wall by pushpins; arranged correctly to make up a whole picture. These sheets quietly flutter as the viewers walk by.
