Memory Old and New
Memory Old and New is an exploration of combining older artwork with recent and new work. The combine process mimics the way the effects of time changes how we remember events and experiences from the past and how the perception shapes new memories and experiences. This new piece uses an old wooden sculpture with a rubber tube encased in glass from the early nineteen nineties and combines it with a TV and pedestal from two separate installations from the early two thousands. The 30-second video is a new creation using a static shot of the rubber tube element from the original sculpture. The special effects of stars and sound track, both created by the artist, refer back to his childhood video game consoles like the Atari 2600 and original Nintendo, and his love of 80's hip hop and hardcore music.
