Mnemonic┬áis a series that focuses on those quintessential moments, or rites of passage, that are universal throughout all societies and can effect our social interactions for the rest of our lives. The initial inspiration for this work was one of Sigmund Freud’s earliest theories that past reminiscences and thoughts directly influence our immediate thoughts as they are not unconscious but rather just not conscious at that exact moment. My aspiration for these images is for them to act as a mnemonic device which assists the viewer with not only experiencing my memories but to be transported back to their own.
