The work in Re:Collections draws from personal family history, thoughts on the photograph and the family album as mnemonic devices, and research on traditional and counter memorials to explore the dichotomy of remembering and forgetting. The installation is comprised of several individual pieces that when shown together reveal themselves as distinctive steps of an ongoing process which becomes a physical manifestation of the constant struggle between the desire to forget and the human propensity to remember.
