  • I suck my tounge in remembrance of you : a research on the photography's effect on memory
  • June 2011
  • To be authentic was an important term in the working process of “I Suck my tongue in Remembrance of You”. We wanted to dig deep down in our baggage of memory and transform these memories into movements. We wanted to stay true to our movements in that process. To explore this phenomenon “to be true” I gave the exercise to find a clear memory from the past and a weak memory from the past and from that make two different movement phrases. I had assumed that the movement phrase made from the clear memory would be much clearer in the movement language than the other made from the unclear memory. But a process similar to the process of remembering from a photograph happened. We started to fill in the unclearness with abstract but clear movements so that both movement phrases became clear in the expression. I think that is a natural way of thinking as a human being. We always want to understand, and therefore if something is unclear to us we make it clear by filling in the wholes. I think our memory works like that too. If we don’t know all the details in a memory (that we impossible can) then we make them up. In that sense our memories are more or less always inauthentic.
