VHS (Entry Hall Wallpaper)
“VHS (Entry Hall Wallpaper) is a permanent marker drawing on paper that depicts a collection of old childhood VHS tapes from my family collection against the Jacobean wallpaper pattern from my childhood house entry hall. In my work, erasure, fragmentation and simplification represent the imperfect, limited nature of memory and the constant notion of flux we experience in an increasingly digital world. In many cases, I want to create incomplete templates, scenarios that serve as blanks to fill in, rather than specific individuals or events. The constant tech evolution is one of contemporary society’s main themes, something I’ve experienced throughout my life. Pixelation and computer manipulation represent the merging of the physical and digital reality, while the people in the images and those old things that were once so important, represent how quickly things change.
