Forget-me-not is a piece in the series Nostalgia.
Reality is an illusion created by memories.
When we recall a memory, the event and emotions associated with it are stored slightly differently. Each time a memory is remembered, it is the version stored before, not the original, which is recalled. Over time, memories can become so distorted from this process they no longer resemble the original. Curiously, our perception of reality relies on past experiences, which are recorded as memories, to determine what our ‘truth’ is.
The series Nostalgia explores what is real, what is perceived and what is illusion.
