Act of Forgetting

College/University: Coventry University
Course Level/Title: Media Arts MA

Act of Forgetting takes it’s inspiration from a box of abandoned 35mm slides from the 1960s/1970s. This work returns to the analogue photographic medium and explores loss, memory and disappearance both in terms of the physical material and the imagery which is being lost. The images within Act of Forgetting are re-photographed onto reversal film from the original ‘found footage’ and observe the physicality of the images, their presence at that point in time and the real lives of real people. www.simcoxdesign.co.uk
