It is a sweet story about a little boy who lives next to an "old-people's home" and has befriended a woman named Miss Nancy. He overhears his parents saying she has lost her memory, prompting him to ask those around him, "What's a memory?" After receiving a variety of answers, he gathers up objects that fit the various explainations and brings them to Miss Nancy. Each one brings back memories of her childhood and helps her "find" her memory.
I think this story is a good representation of how we all define memories in different ways and even more so - the way a feeling or smell or object can trigger in us a memory that had been forgotten. I think some of the most interesting memories don't necessarily have an exciting "plot line," but those that have a rich atmosphere - colors, smells, emotions, sounds, and so on. In my posters, I think I really want to explore these aspects of memory through the use of layering, transparency, and the types of cuts I'm making.
