For the last few years my work has predominantly been concerned with social media and life documenting. In contrast I have recently found my interest reaching toward the distorted memories that a life spent documenting our daily life events creates. I have begun to create work that plays with real fragments of memories, or at least real to me: and if changed or distorted it is only through the naturally ageing brain rather than the memory having been enhanced to begin with.
I am particularly excited by the stirring of a long forgotten moment, triggered by something seemingly unrelated. I recently walked into a room and a structure in the corner reminded me of an aviary. I then remembered that I often visited the aviary in Sefton Park, Liverpool during weekends with my grandparents.

Hello 🙂 I apologize if I’ve clicked on the wrong section to comment – hopefully I’ve got it right – but I just wanted to pass along my compliments on the ‘Before 13’ piece. It beautifully juxtaposes what I’d see as fragments of memories into a recount of the day. It reminds me in a way of how I’d recall a dream – certain things as sharp and defined as can be, but washed by the overall emotional color of the dream. It is very well done, Miss 🙂 Keep up the beautiful and inspiring work!
