ENGRAM PRINT SERIES
*Engram is an historical, hypothetical concept coined by memory researcher Richard Semon, as a way to explain the way in which memory traces are stored as biophysical or biochemical changes in the brain.
Each of the images in this series suggests a fleeting moment captured in time. They are iconic fragments of common life experiences intended to remind us of how our identities are constructed from memory and bodily existence.
The Engram Series is part of a multi-faceted body of work that includes robotic installations such as Carnevale (2002) and Portal (2012). This work investigates the cultural, social, and technological contexts that give rise to consciousness, thought and memory.
