The idea of not only forgotten memory, but that of complete fiction is something that fascinates me. I only recently came across this quite late into the module, and so is something I plan to investigate further moving into my Final Major Project. Creatively reconstructed our sense of what was the past is seemingly quite common, with he work below playing on the example of people remembering they had been lost in a shopping centre when in actual fact it had never happened. A great idea to play on these myths of childhood and agin something I want to explore further. It is almost going one step further than Freud's analogy of the human mind being alike to the writing pad where the memories fade like the wax imprint on the pad.
