Memory Loss

"Memory Loss” is an art piece that takes you on a journey, symbolizing how our memories are being lost through social media. I was interested in both physical and emotional ruin and explored this idea by using found photographs that each holds a story and a memory that can no longer be recalled. Today’s photo album is Facebook, a social networking site that enables users to live in the moment, but rarely look at the past. To help symbolize this I physically ruined the found photographs by burning, ripping, tearing and crumpling them. These photographic remains should have been stored in family photo albums but instead they have become forgotten stories.
