"I'm afraid one day I won't be able to remember her face at all. Or even worse, the face I remember won't be hers."

— From Yves

Description


Memory assists perception, grounding our understanding of those around us and those who have left their traces through time -- but how reliable is memory really? Memory is malleable, shaped and shifted through consolidation and reconsolidation. Consolidation is the neurological process that stores memories after an event's occurrence; reconsolidation refers to a process whereby consolidated memories later become unstable, causing false or loose recall. Reconsolidation: Or, it's the ghosts who will answer you is a lyrical montage born out of the eternal loss of a loved one. Powerfully crafted during grief's inertia, Janice Lee elegantly weaves the present with recollections of a tenuous past, arresting memory's flexible and vulnerable position in the lifelong process of mourning. A eulogy for a loved one -- pure and honest -- Reconsolidation is a poetic search for a lost connection.
