MEMORY LANE / public art project for AURORA FESTIVAL / Museum District, in front of Dallas Museum of Art / 8 channel video installation on 4 semi trucks / 300 X 500 cm each projection / 2015
/ In the famous scene from Mad Men TV Series, Don Draper is presenting a new name for the slide projector — the “Carousel”: “Nostalgia — its’ a delicate, but potent. … in Greek, “nostalgia” literally means “the pain from an old wound”… It takes us to a place we ache to go again. Its not called the wheel, its called a carousel. It let’s us travel the way a child travels — around and around, and back home again, to a place, where we know are loved”. The project MEMORY LANE — is the digital slide show / video installation, visualized collective memory created in cooperation with four powerful archive holders: The Dallas Morning News, Dallas Public Library, Dallas Historical Society and Dallas Mexican American Historical League. In addition through Open Call organized by The Dallas Morning News Texas-based people were able to share their memories / images with Aurora Festival participants. The result is 8 channel video installation projected onto four semi trucks, installed along the road in front of Dallas Museum of Art, renaming this part of a walk for the night “Memory Lane”.
