This project investigates aspects of anxiety and memory, and the effects that war trauma has on certain memories stored in the brain. The images I construct are based upon my perceptions of what happens when traumatic memories are created and stored in the brain. In my experience, memories are consolidated, stacked and stored on top of one another which results in lost and fragmented information and formatted in a skewed sense of time. In this series, I use images from my first deployment to Iraq, that are autobiographical, complicated them through strategies of overlapping, interruption and fragmentation to reflect the sense of anxiety that is the by-product of being placed in a war zone.
