Save Event: I Forget Why I Live To Remember

A humorous, perhaps tongue in cheek photo documentary. Photographs in this series taken during the artist’s hitchhiking trip a few years ago.

About

Unlike the images typically circulated on social media by the digital pilgrims of our age, the location of the artist’s whereabouts is never disclosed in his documentary 

Accompanying the photographs is a stop motion film of 500,000+ images of every image taken, recorded or saved onto a computer from the artist’s life: a complete, fleeting auto -portrait of moments from the depths of his computer, sourced from a generic recovery application in an attempt to salvage his holiday photos after having accidentally deleted them. Contrary to the demure prints, these images come in a splurge of over-explicit information. The photographic prints attempt to hide from visual reason, the stop motion images desperately attempting to remember everything forgotten.
