Subverting how architects create future-spaces, my practice is focused on how the present translates to become memory. Whilst photography was used as a tools for recording, in the image economy it becomes a reason for existence. In the modern day, it is not foreign that things are created, events are organised, and people show-up to be captured and turned into images. Focusing on the question "How a moment can be captured and preserved, remembered and returned-to?" I am interested in studying the subtleties of each person’s phenomenological understanding of a moment, revealing the subjectivity of our understanding of the world beyond the surface of images. Through translation, registration, copying and mimicry, I aim to reveal depth and connect the strengths of different minds in re-constructing and questioning what we read as the present.
