L GALLERY - VIDEO ART - ALESSANDRA ARMENISE






MIKEY PETERSON (USA), Slip Away 2014

Memories diverge from the experiences they intend to mirror. They emerge as an alternate reality we create and revise over time. These visions skew, as our minds focus on fragments of the original experiences - sometimes these visions warp the event to the point where they no longer represent the event but create an alternative version, a dream-like new reality that can influence our present selves. Maybe our selves and our lives are built upon this process of useful mis-remembering.
In this one-shot video, buildings hide behind a natural impressionistic haze. The imagery is familiar, but it's always at a distance, as movement, light, and sound reinforces its surrealism. What we see is in constant flux, and the same can be said of what we view as Truth and Self.
