Take a look at the amount of information we freely give. How we leave a digital breadcrumb trail for anyone to follow it to our true self. How far do we lead them until they reach the finish line that is us and our physical life?
Soothing Sorrow is an accumulation of frustration, anger, stress, exhaustion, and defeat during this quarantine period and the impending fear of what the future brings. However, the piece also embraces these inevitable emotions and rises from the depths looking forward to the future with strength and positivity.
To glitch something is to completely remove it from its original context. In this work I used it to represent the concept of fading memories as we get older. Our minds normally work by filtering out unneeded information and recollections that haven’t been reinforced over time. Being able to glitch memories helps to visualize the way the brain can only recall certain parts or nothing at all. It is, overall, a progression into a jumbled mess of static, misaligned colores and hazy overlays that constantly shift, but never accurately completes the picture it is supposed to convey. The mind is attempting to fill gaps in thoughts only to end up with a distorted interpretation of what the original memory was. This work captures my own experience with this loss as well as how I sometimes feel as though I am living in a haze because I cannot remember things clearly.
