Erasing Memory

An exploration of the ephemeral nature of human recollection.

Through the technique of double exposure photography, this project juxtaposes images of everyday scenes with ethereal overlays, inviting viewers to contemplate the fragility and distortion of memory. Each photograph serves as a visual metaphor, capturing the gradual dissolution of past experiences and the elusive essence of personal history. As layers intertwine and blur, the boundaries between reality and abstraction become fluid, echoing the elusive nature of our own fleeting remembrances.

“I seem to have erased big chunks of memory especially painful or distressing moments in my life. It’s as if my brain has stored those moments away so it can focus on survival… “

"After gaining access to a phone using a six-digit PIN number, I stumbled upon distressing information. Since then, my mind has stubbornly refused to retain that particular PIN, despite numerous attempts to recall it. Interestingly, I can effortlessly remember phone numbers from my childhood, some spanning seven or nine digits, despite not using them in over two decades. “


Could it be that our brains instinctively shield us from traumatic experiences by selectively erasing certain memories?
