This series confronts the difference between
memory and remembrance through images of Venice.
It is a play on the idea that our memories are
somehow a factual account, when in reality affect
and identity distort the image that is both formed
and recalled. Venice possesses the illusion of an
unchanging identity despite constant cycles of
deterioration and renovation. Venice becomes the
metaphor for remembrance in accord with this
accepted narrative.
