A visualization of how our memory works in our minds. This piece is inspired by the way we think of our own memory as a reliable database of information, available for us to recall anything if we simply think of it. When in fact, our memories are more a reflection of ourselves: our present selves react to an image of what we used to be. This means our memories are not as reliable as we believe; as we grow older and our minds change, so do our opinions of how we used to be. And so we mould our memories to depict what we'd like them to, how we'd like to remember ourselves. As time goes on, details about older memories are forgotten, and we summarize each memory to an essence. A single image, color, smell, sound, or taste.
