There exists fragility in memory. Being a keeper of memories, the MemoryBox is an illustration to bring to light some of these memories. Finding its origin in modernist poet, Charles Bukowski’s ‘Bluebird’, using the medium of photography, the artist etched his vulnerability and personal experiences over a definite moment of time (about a second) making the memory, singular and indelible. This transient memory then boxed using other materials, integral to the experience, made the MemoryBox. A Photographic Object, the MemoryBox takes the form of various authentic objects that are used to store memorabilia and reinvents the photographic light box.
The photographs in themselves are abstracts from the artists’ non-linear visual journal, where he also introspects on the paradigms of quantum of solace sometimes using nudity to depict vulnerability and honesty.
