The Persistence of Forgetting
In a series of interpretations and misrepresentations of a single experience through a warehouse, the project uses drawing as both product and instrument to represent multiple recollections. Each drawing, far from permanent and final value, is subject to the persistence of remembering and forgetting. Objects get abstracted and rescaled. Stories get translated and distorted. The truth is always incomplete.
