These drawings are related to my mother and are both a reflection and an interpretation of her current memory state. Due to injuries received in an automobile accident several years ago, my mother is experiencing some degree of memory loss. The accident caused damage to both her hippocampi, the limbic organs of the brain that process and consolidate short-term and long-term memory. As a result she has developed a moderate amount of short-term memory loss and a greater degree of long-term memory loss. Through many intimate conversations I have assisted her with this situation, attempting to retrieve as much as possible about her past: what her childhood experience was like, her feelings about her parents and siblings, her reflection of the era in which she grew up. The drawings based on her recollections and visual descriptions are my translation of how she ‘sees’ her memories.
