Memories of Clouds Past (work in progress)
Each of these images consists of a cloud digitally constructed by the artist from another person's hand-drawn sketch. Drawn from each participant's mental image of a cloud rather than as documentation of any particular cloud, then digitally produced as photographic images, these clouds are confabulations, composite memories derived from the imagination. Each image, then, presents a kind of false documentation, the photographic evidence of a memory that never actually existed.
