Feverland is a found photographic project meant to explore the disfiguring effect of time on memories.
While documenting the natural (and unnatural) decay of an abandoned home in a complimentary video project entitled Transmuting Vacancy, I have since gathered a number of discarded 35mm color slides from the aged debris. The slides, once a nostalgic way to look back on time, have now ripened into decayed and fragmented frames of the past.
The decay that has engulfed these 35mm slides represent a metaphor for how easily a memory can become distorted, fragmented, or even destroyed over long periods of time and neglect.
The video below is an installation view of this project - a sequence of images reflects on this idea of time and how it eventually deteriorates the mental image of what was once remembered so clearly.
