"Photographs can thus act as embodied sites that can transfer a sense of experience through space and time. Images of spaces and things have a different temporality to those of people in the sense that they are not images of events, but rather of states of presence—or absence. By paying attention to things, to details and to objects, the photograph can elevate them from the status of unnoticed elements into that of significant carriers of emotional and psychological depth and meaning."

----Lowe, P. 

What happened happened, there are biases in the participant’s memory. Individuals mould their memories unconsciously into what they expected. Focusing on a series of images related to my family background, I recalled that a gift from my father. It rarely impressed me until it became a crash by a huge truck, destroyed it physically and memorably. Speaking of this experience, people forgot the appearance of the souvenir, even misremember that it did not exist on that bridge. Through the “flashback” on the top of the camera, it seems to be able to re-connect and zoom-in the misty objects in deep consciousness. We would attempt to reconstruct it from the fragments of memory.

“照片可以作为具有具象性的场所,通过空间和时间传递一种体验感。空间和事物的图像与人的图像具有不同的时间性,因为它们不是事件的图像,而是存在或缺席的状态。通过对事物的关注、对细节的关注、对物体的关注, 将它们从被忽视的元素地位提升为情感和心理深度和意义的重要载体。”

这是一个耐人寻味的问题,无论事件曾经怎样发生了,在每个人的记忆当中都会有偏差,个体会不自觉的将回忆塑造成自己所期望的。回想起曾有一件来自父亲的礼物,5岁的我非常喜欢,但是还没让我对它有很深记忆的时候就已毁在一辆大货车的轮子底下,连残骸也没有接触到。多年后机缘巧合之下说起这段经历,父亲似乎忘记这个物品的存在,对于物品外貌的描述也大相径庭。“是一支蓝色儿童手表还是橙色的橡皮球?我记得是黑色的塑料相机玩具!”。通过闪光灯的“闪回”,似乎可以重新接近和建立与父亲情感的纽带。记忆之荧是一场关于家庭琐事的回忆与虚构。
