Residence Plan
Memory is what makes us individuals. Every time a memory is recalled it has the potential to become less accurate because of the gaps in detail that can occur. It is an incredibly intricate aspect of the human brain which is also personal and unique to the individual. Because I visited 3331 Arts Chiyoda in 2017, I plan to complete a series of works depicting the art center and other areas from memory. Upon visiting the Chiyoda area again, I will then complete the drawings once more from life. The resulting series of artworks aims to represent the complex nature of cognition and to provoke thought about memory.
