After a period of reflection, I asked myself a question: How do people store memories? Although the physical image can be an object, the mind relates it directly to images in the brain. Like supercuts. These memories are not exact, and they live in our brain’s archive. Every time we think about them, a new layer reveals itself.
I called this images abstract pictures because they’re not in the physical realm but they are alive in the memory. Regardless of what’s in the picture, we made a subjective relationship between the physical image with the images in our heads.
In Supercuts, I show that, sometimes, memory can be affected by the mind. People talk about love and being heard. For many people, talking about love can be a liberating experience. I was not interested in the process of collecting images, but rather collecting feelings in archive photos. Why do people preserve these memories? Why do people like to talk about ex loves? Supercuts was made with the donation of 200 love story archive images from China, South Korea, Colombia, Argentina, Mexico, Cuba, France, Spain, England, USA. I selected 14 images to be presented. Ex lovers, parents, pets... the only way to put them in the physical realm is to write about them. In these images we deposit feelings and questions. They are treasures only valuable to the eyes of those who guard them and are ready to share.
Writing becomes photography.
