Photographic Memories

Traditionally photographs have acted as representations of our personal memories, powerful mnemonic images indicative of a time, place and experience.

However as mass-produced digital photographic technologies emphasise ease, convenience and instantaneity, it is all too easy to indulge in the indiscriminate mass-production of images.

Here memories become commodity. Archived and hidden away on computers, or distributed amongst countless others online. Often not valued as memories, they become mundane visualisations of unremarkable or unfamiliar events.

This project aims to re-appropriate digital photographic technologies in a way that will enable the user to create images that are more personal and significant.

If photographs, and the tools used to create them, were more specific to, and indicative of the events and experiences that they represent, would they produce more significant, more valued memories?
