The writing below is in response to the question asked in our advanced L.D. class:
This semester, I want to learn about how memory works. The way someone can look at something and remember it forever, or forget it instantly. Or how events that happen in a lifetime can be remembered or regressed.
This idea absolutly resides in psychology and brain functions.
It interests me because, in my entire life I have had to remember things for school, work, music, art, etc and some things I just cannot recall while others are like it happened moments ago. Also, I have noticed a lot of my own memories being/have been regressed, and I would like to see where it will take me on the road called memory lane. I want to explore why this is.
By looking at family history, and discussing memories with family and friends, and also looking in books about brain function and interpretation of events to the brain, I will eventually be able to create a unique style of work centered around this idea.
Memories can be really distinct or fuzzy, there will be a mixture of conte', chalk pastel, paint, ink, colored pencil, marker, and other objects to emphasise things.
