Laura Vela - Latvia

Inspiration for series of artworks "Defragmentation of a Mind" came from research of Time and Memory formation. Mostly from St. Augustine book "Confessions", where he compared memory as different images that comes unrequested. The aim of my artwork series is to show the uncertainty and abstraction of time and memories.  The result is paintings as objects, the intermediate stage in categorising artworks - also a keyframe or shortest time segment in the big matter of time. As truer becomes the memory as chaotic it appears. As I would like to quote memory maker from the movie "Blade runner 2049" : "They all think it’s about more detail. But that’s not how memory works. We recall with our feelings. Anything real should be a mess." 

The research references is Roger C. Aden book "Childhood Memory Spaces", St. Augustine "Confessions", Henri Bergson "Matter and Memory" and Marcel Proust book "In search of the lost time"
