Collectionist of old pictures, letters and postcards; Inspired by the actual condition of how they are affected by time. I consider important to honor oblivion and understand it to raise awareness about the importance and implications it has in our everyday life as a natural process to accept reality and our fate.
I like to work with pieces from the past to give importance to everything that makes us who we are directly as individuals and indirectly as society. The human being has multiple experiences throughout his life that can be negative or positive, all of them are tools that constitute the social structure of an individual, that conforms is certain aspects of a person's way of being.
The word Thymesis comes from the Greek etymology, which means to remember. This project arises from a trip to my past and therefore to my memories. I consider it to be a source of inspiration that can be projected into actions based on what is kept from itself.
I explored and used as a basis for the forgetting process that occurs according to Hermann Ebbinghaus proposed in his theory of The Forgetting Curve, with the intention to understand its process. Looking to represent the passage of time as a mark and the nature of its wear through its three sub-theories that make up it: - The decay of the footprint. - The theory of interference. - The theory of fragmentation.
My silhouettes and textures are based on these elements, since they are pieces that have to be forcibly modified for a period of time, distorting what it initially was, just like how memory works.
