Abstract

The Exquisite Resonance of Memory is a work about how memories are encountered through provenance and circumstance. The manifestation of collective or cultural memory through reframing the visual representation of the Baroque (to pin-point a time of early European awareness of the Australian continent) reflects on the role memory plays in lending form and consequence to our idea of self.

The work dramatises the way memory functions through association, leaps, or dislocates to become the shadows of ideas and how the more profound of these occurrences can give us a new understanding of our relationship with the world.

Research Statement

Research Background Through juxtaposition with the seventeenth century visual arts genre of memento mori, and the work uses extensive temporal moving image projections and spacialised sound. References to traditional and changing perceptions of museums include the Wunderkammer and Vanitas iconography. Traditional perceptions that museums are a mirror to humanity and the mimetic tradition in art have been amplified through the media arts. This work converges the Baroque aesthetic with contemporary media arts to highlight the ambiguities between memory, historical reference and contemporary life.
