Precious Memories

In a climate increasingly infiltrated by technology, Precious Memories investigates the possibility of delegating hobbies to machinery – enlisting the help of a thermal printer to churn out a constant ‘scrapbook stream’. Working alongside a moving image that depicts the artist assembling a paper scrapbook by hand, employing editing techniques stereotypical of contemporary, sentimentally-charged, social-media-shared ‘twee’ or ‘kitsch’ video, the constant digital creation of a clinically formatted scrapbook by the thermal printer aims to communicate a detachment from physical methods of creation.
