The Corruption of Memory
Plywood, cardboard, paint
Salvador Dali is reputed to have painted his iconic The Persistence of Memory with its distorted clocks after watching camembert cheese liquefying in the sun. I have recontextualised Dali’s distorted timepieces in the form of a mis-scanned grandfather clock. My work mimics the distortion that occurs when computer memory becomes corrupted.
