Atsushi Momoi’s series ‘A Light Leads To Another’ – “I’ve been inspired by my personal experience that some fragmentary memories are recalled irrelevantly, indeed it happens to all of us. These memories having utterly different contexts in time and space respond to each other as fragmental images in light and then they are about to connect with one light after another. While “past and there” which have been reconstructed and modified to suit “now and here ” remain and flicker, I recognize that my consciousness is composed of layers of memory.
In order to visualize this dynamic process about evocation, I shot my Mac display monitor which is randomly projecting the photographs taken by myself, a gathering of memories, by a function of slideshow. Not only through re-photographing incoherent images overlapped on a monitor, but also making use of the specific character of photography which is “save the memories” as a metaphor, I have tried to trace the form of consciousness derived of memory. My aim of this work is to reconsider the connection between the “past” memory and the phase of “now.”
