From the artist
“The goal of the project is to explore the ways people communicate, document, and map moments from the past or in the present, and the relationships that are created in and by the various media used to those ends. We locate everything we experience, in the present or as memory, in a place, and those experiences, because they are subject to the whims of subjectivity, are personal, and so too a kind of myth.”
