Mnemonic

Mnemonic is a series that focuses on those quintessential moments, or rites of passages, that are universal t­ hroughout 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 thoughts but 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 just experiencing my memories but to be transported back to their own.

Mnemonic je niz koji se usredotočuje na suštinske ­trenutke, ili na obrede prolaznosti, koja su zajednička svim ­društvima i koja mogu obilježiti našu socijalnu interakciju do kraja života. Početni poticaj za ovaj rad bila je jedna od teorija Sigmunda Freuda koja kaže da prošlost uspomena direktno utječe na sadašnji trenutak. Moja težnja za ove fotografije je da budu mnemoničko sredstvo koje će pomoći gledatelju ne samo da iskusi moja sjećanja već da bude prebačen u vlastita.
