"TO BE HUMAN IS TO HAVE A UTOPIA."[Christian Boltanski]. As humans we recognize ourselves by remembering. This is the evidence of existing in a chronological context, which forms identity. But memory hasn’t to be true implicitly.
People collect proofs like photographs, documents and letters to verify their memories. I follow from this an existential doubt: Can I trust memory? Who am I really? If I don't leave any traces, have I ever existed?
In this area of conflict I am interested in man’s subjective sensations and his capability to remember, to forget, to associate and to create - consciously or not - his own Utopia.
