Conscious Confabulation

Conscious Confabulation juxtaposes real events and surreal manufactured memories. Confabulation is a psychological term for memory fabrication. It occurs when false recollections masquerade as facts in our error-prone and malleable memory. This project is a constructed confabulation—a conscious attempt to recreate this subconscious phenomenon.

In this series documents collected during foreign travels represent factual episodic memories and each video depicts an imagined anecdote filling the blanks in between.

'Conscious Confabulation' was exhibited at the 2015 edition of Design House [curated by Möbius design studio] as part of Sikka

Art Fair in Dubai (commissioned by Dubai Culture & Arts Authority). During the installation the three animations were projected on a wall bearing the three collected items.

 

In this clip I tried to recreate the experience by overlapping the artifacts and the animations digitally.
