The past only exists through documentation, imagination, recreation, evocation, and recollection of impressions. Me-more-y is an interactive installation made of several pieces. Digital and physical symbolic representations of unrelated memories without any proposed narrative.
Me-more-y is an autobiographical piece and an exploration of the vast field of memory. Based on personal experiences of close relatives with dementia. Me-more-y is a reflection and representation of memories of an entire life. How differently do we encode, store and retrieve memories in the digital era? How differently our brains operate compared to machines and computers?
This project is dedicated to my grandparents. To Maruja, who lost her memory and lived in a limbo state for almost ten years. As his father before, as her sisters later on. To Dionisio, who accompanied her in all those years until he decided to end their travel at the sunset of their lives.
