YEAR 5 / 2021
'Memory Palace' is a contemporary multi-disciplinary, time-based project by Sim Luttin that explores the significance of capturing moments and handmaking objects when we live in a complex, globalised time.
Mass production and the ubiquitous uploading of images creates endless clutter and visual noise in the physical and digital world. This project is a conscious intervention that aims to quietly pause, connect, document, and reflect ordinary daily moments. By doing so, Sim will imbue personal meaning into the images and objects, tracing time and revealing aspects of the human condition. The exploration will result in ten yearlong series' of images that will inform the creation of ten collections of handmade objects. The final presentation will culminate in idiosyncratic and tangible 'memory palaces' that span one decade of one person's lived moments in time.
