rememberment - installation, separation, synthesis 2009
rememberment is a multi-media, interdisciplinary art installation that explores the construction of meaning, memory, and understanding loss through the compositing of segmented experiences using modular objects and images.
I sorted and compiled photographic fragments, bits of language and family stories, objects in states of disintegration or reintegration and layers of sound and light in order to create a bridge between myself and others.
Originally installed as my MFA thesis show, it coincided with the death of my brother James, after a 20-month long battle with cancer. Although he did not live to see it, he was a key collaborator (along with my other siblings) in this exhibition.
