How does our memory work? How does computer memory work?
Can we represent our memory’s biased, easily influenced nature to a computer?
These are all questions I had while creating the Memory Processing Unit (MPU).
Originally, this project was centered around a single video I made during my foundation year. The video was made with the prompt of a “Self Portrait Without Yourself”. The result was a video that centered around my life at home, sharing a room with my sister. I wanted to revisit that video because it was made during the same time of year as I would be making this work in 2021. I wanted whatever result came out of revisiting that video to be my output and my finished product.
In a turn of events, I found myself creating a system that became more and more intricate as the time went on. This system was originally a second thought, a means to an end for the output I wanted. However, during a demonstration of my work in progress, I realized how important this system was to my goal of refabricating my own memories and mediating them through a computer system. This shifted my view from this being a project about a video I created in my first year, to a system that I would like to apply to future projects and to share amongst other people so they can generate their own content, however that may look.
A twine project about memory through music, online identity and online archiving.
The amount of voice memos that I’ve left for myself is what drives this project. That and the various small pieces of music I’ve played around since I was little, involving vocal covers and other such things, to audio introductions and more.
There's not much else to add other than I want to experiment with text and audio, kinda going through an introspective of my life alongside music, branching off to thoughts, to ideas, to contexts and what I gravitated towards.

Created by merging two skylines from different locations, this score focuses on the different scales of our environmentsーthe macro and the micro.
The macro is the black skyline that persists through the entire image, while the micro are the photos in the background, which were objects present around us while shooting. All photos were taken on walks through our own neighbourhoods.

The result was a film that centered around my life at home, sharing a room with my sister during the winter.
An experimental video made with gathered GRWM videos from Youtube. GRWM stands for 'Get Ready With Me', a type of video format that centers around a person getting ready in front of the camera. The videos were filtered by the most recently uploaded.
A short video that served to explore what
Youtube considered the most "saddest scenes" in films.
It aimed to both erase, distort and amplify the emotion
found in these scenes, either interrupting or informing
the viewer's original context of these popular scenes.
The text in this video was generated by enabling automatic closed captions on the original scene on Youtube. The title is a reference to one of the captions generated.
Taken at a local mall that I've lived by for my entire life. Using double-exposure, I wanted to capture the familiar sights that I grew up with and that ultimately will forever morph as time goes on.

Divination Box was performed in a small group consisting of 20 people.
In the middle, the performer lays in a pile of blankets on a hard stone floor.
Beside her is a smooth, fabric covered box that is connected to a laptop,
whose screen remains black. The room is dark, with the only light coming from a
warm lamp off to the side.
The performance consists of the performer pulling out wires with copper diodes attatched to the end from the box. She then quietly lays down and ritualistically runs the ends of the wires against her face and exposed arms for several minutes. After the ritual is done, she sits up and meticulously puts away the wires back inside the box. She presses one button on the laptop, and the screen is projected onto the wall; the Divination Box's final result.
