Cinema of Memory illuminates an archival photo album by simulating the cognitive interplay when one is confronted with familial photos of decades past—images distant through time, yet not distant through relation. 

 

Images sourced from Bicknaver’s family photo albums are brought to life by pairing them with custom cinematic soundtracks. This creates subtle fictions that reflect ones we all unintentionally fabricate in an effort to make sense of a familial past—a past we are inherently part of, but not always present for. 

 

Rather than choosing ubiquitous portraits, images that are saved, yet rarely unearthed, are used. They show unidentifiable figures in sometimes common experiences—high school sporting events, restaurants, etc.—invoking a relatable, nostalgic familiarity in the viewer.
