Forgotten Memory

How does the world looks like, when you don’t know how it looks? How does a person suffering from dementia experience his or her surroundings? From a desire to understand the world of people suffering from the condition, we created an image of their hazy, fragile and precarious existence. As a metaphor for the condition, a series of everyday objects are transformed to demonstrate that things are not always what you would expect. An invisible and hidden world is exposed. We always refer to the things we have learned, but what if we do not have anything to refer to?
