Description
Summary:Experiential memories are the memories affected by our on-going lived experience. This practice-based research project explores, through the processes of creative practice in cast glass, how recalling experiential memories can unlock repressed memories that have been distorted in childhood. It examines the epistemological value of experiential memories as a resource and an individualisation tool in contemporary art practice, by identifying the effects of my own disturbed childhood experiences and how they influence my glass making process. This project employs the notion that the playhouse is both a physical and an imaginative space. It is through the playhouse that past experiences and present creative techniques can converge through the re-configuration of memories, which in turn propose distortions that reflect the paradox of remembering childhood. It specifically looks at the familiar threads to the past, such as the learned experiences connected to play, crochet, and memories associated with a childhood doll. These investigations are presented through an installation of crochet and cast glass objects.
