The Magical Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two
A moving image and sound collaboration with James Sutherland
“Miller’s Law is the number of objects an average human being can hold in working memory. In this artwork we investigate this to explore Autonoetic Memory and Endel Tulving’s notion of Mental Time Travel, the voluntary or involuntary ability to project one’s self in a past or future situation often triggered by an external stimulus such as a familiar sound, smell or image. The footage is from journeys taken in 2010 and 2013 and will be reminiscent to many but specific to only one. Images and sound work in a generative way, creating moments of synchresis before separating. The quality of the image is painterly, impressionistic and indistinct. A fading memory. The viewer is invited to hold the information and to find the pattern through the multiple layers of image and sound.”
