For me, a memory is the thought of a feeling. Feeling, in this case, is the appreciable radiation of sensory emanating from all objects and persons in a given moment of time. â€œAll thought, like all feeling, is a relationship between one human being and another human being or certain objects which form a part of his universeâ€ (Astruc). Be it an instance of attraction to another person, a place, a creation, an object, or purely an aesthetic pleasure, said instance will become ingrained as a part of an aggregation of moment-to-moment experiences that form an individualâ€™s universe and lifetime of perceptions. Through film, I hope to give a visual tangibility for such feelings, a replayable, and relatively more permanent, representation. Itâ€™s a process similar to the way a headstone memorializes a life. A few words in stone could never measure up to the present time of actually living, but this is because they are not comparable. In much the same way, a synthesized montage of images cannot be compared to a memory, but should be used as way to experience the memory in a new way.
