Anna’s Windmill: work in progress

Just as the memory process is an on-going collaboration between the past, present and the mind, this project is turning out to be a complex conversation between my recollections, my current interests, and the discovery of how guided creativity can access broader understanding. I started with an idea, and allowed the act of making a collage help dissect and then re-connect various images of the windmill, just as I have a multitude of memories of this landscape feature. The collage became a key screen, and then was printed over a variety of experimental backgrounds. The surprise was the clarity that emerged when the key screen was printed; the backgrounds themselves did not seem interesting or informative. I compare the effect of the key to the print, to the context that surrounds representation; the environment creates a structure for memory images/sounds/smells/touch to exist and become clear.
