I am interested in the phenomenon that I experience when remembering an environment that has psychologically effected me: when for whatever reason I feel an emotional reaction to, and develop a synesthetic association with a particular space, maintaining a memory of it through those emotions and associations over the image itself. Over time that image of recollection shifts away from its true physical form, held together only by its intangible ties. The more significant pieces of the memory are emphasized while others diminish over a period of years, leaving what I describe as the initial "feeling" of the space, both slightly abstracted, and entirely familiar. The shifting perspective in Constructed Recollection is used to mimic the experience of passing through a fleeting recognition?of a smell, a taste, an image?that sparks an emotional response beyond the memory itself. I aim to visually represent and manipulate a moment of intangible recognition, when somehow one?s mind may conjure a memory that seems like it may be from a dream, or at least something from so far in the past that the physical image has become distorted. Lavender shades, wood grains, deep blue glass, and warm light bulbs come together with elements from my first home to provide a nostalgic, tranquil environment within the preexisting building, speaking through a silent and intuitive language for a moment within our daily lives.
