Memory Induction Trial #1, Family Disney Trip

This is the first piece in a new direction in my work. The idea of false memories, the fallibility of memory and the seemingless endless possibilities of exploiting memory are inherently fascinating. Disney Trip is my first attempt at trying to force myself to have a completely new memory of an event that never happened. Using Google Image Search and photo sharing sites such as Flickr, I gleamed images of family vacations and placed images of myself and my family in those pictures. They are intentionally left looking “shopped” to heighten the sensation of where fiction meets reality.
