A personal reading of the memoryscope

A memoryscope is:

aesthetic – perceptible by the senses;
forensic – in the sense of the word’s Latin origin (forensis), a discussion or examination performed in public;
a form of remembrance;
an artwork built from traces that history has left lying around;
emotional and credible – communicating the meaning, emotions and feelings implicit to the past into the present;
affective, intimate, and (in my case) personal;
a response to gaps and absences;
an attempt at reconstructing systematic comprehension;
informed and/or prompted by evidence;
speculative, imaginative, but also historically informed;
compelling, cajoling and challenging;

This mixed-media piece offers a personal reading of the characteristics I have identified in Ross Gibson’s memoryscope construct.
