Surrogate memory explores the historical and social context of undisclosed, made up, or fabricated spaces. The work uses the architecture of these locations to explore the relationship between memory and photography. Working with sound, projection and image rendering technology, the project responds to the memories and places that have been erased from narratives of its locale and its surrounding communities.
Through photographic intervention these spaces are reanimated, creating a visual melody that augments the space through a collective personal experience. Surrogate memories attempts to create a fictional landscape in which to imagine different realities, while opening up a space to question our own.
