The man with excessive memory (2005)

9 min 50 sec, colour, sound, May 2005

 

Project made with leftovers of images, clips of video, and fragments of sound,  reflecting upon the “superabundance” of images and stimuli of contemporaneity, and how this superabundance  affects memory.

In this video, all this “leftover” footage is assembled and converted into a video essay/fictional short story,  narrated with subtitles.The story tells the drama of a man with hypermnesia (an excess of memory) and the way he copes with his absurd situation.
