  • Pamela Z METAL/VOX/WATER
    I can still remember the time in the early nineteen nineties when I first purchased memory I delighted in the fact that I could hold it in my hand a thin green wafer etched with a lattice of metal lines And I quickly noticed parallels between the computer s memory and my own Prone to anthropomorphism I continue to compare and often confuse the two I am interested in exploring how humans and computers store memory How do they misplace information and how do they lose it entirely How can we differentiate between dreams real and manufactured memories How do certain sounds and aromas trigger very old memories The work is performed in an immersive media environment with multiple channels of video projected on a variety of tall panels and layers of scrim populated by moving full body images faces and abstract material These images combine with live voice and electronics to form an ensemble delivering a collage of stories and interwoven memory fragments A large scale version will be mounted at San Francisco s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in April of 2016 upcoming April 28 2016 Yerba Buena Center for the Arts San Francisco CA USA repertoire
