Memory Forest Revisited

Jessica Aylsworth and Jon Booth, A&BCollective

Multimedia Installation: fabric, marker, branches, sound

Blink Gallery, Ottawa


Memory Forest Revisited invites the viewer to actively experience art while exploring the concept of memory. The viewer is invited to walk through the drawings, on translucent panels of organza, which move as you walk past them, and experience the continually changing soundscape. The installation ask how do we relive memories? Are we passive observers watching replays or do we actively navigate between memories? Do memories present themselves in the entirety of the experience or as snippets and glimpses?

By exploring the views into these memories viewers are invited to interact with the images and forge connections into their own memories.
