A project about remembering real life horrors, the invariable shininess of consumer culture and the unreliable nature of language.
I remember that shocking moment when I'm listening to the news and I hear that something horrendous has been done to someone. The unexpected shock of the moment changing my perception of ... everything.
Over the following days my world settles back into it's usual patterns as I slowly absorb the thing. The horror diminished with each passing news cycle. Until a new horror displaces the last entirely.
Yet there is another kind of horror : the horror of remembering that I have forgotten what should never be forgotten. I have moved on when I really have no right to.
For this project I built spaces using everyday objects and words from the horrors. I build to try to remember the feeling of that shocking moment: a moment that should never be forgotten.
