Corpus emerged from documentation of a specific site and place of memory. Photographic documentation of my paternal grandmother’s house initially intended to preserve this abandoned site before it succumbed to utter decay, transformed into an investigation on how memory is constructed. Memory becomes activated through gaps between thoughts or recollections.
The spectral state of memory leaves residual debris indicated as a temporal shift between past and present. Wrestling with my memory of how things were at this specific site initiates a fulcrum for thinking of a future never attained or actualized. The house remains stuck in time, but moving forward through decay. Ultimately, it will disappear at some point in the near future.
