“The stories you told are now my memories.” Nicolette Swift
Your Memories is a short experimental film shot and edited by Nicolettecinemagraphics’ Nicolette Swift in 2014. The film explores how the stories we hear from others about events and places creates memories of our own that harness ancillary meaning and control our engagement with those events and spaces for the rest of our lives.
This just under two minute film is a combination of styles including site specific documentation with Nicolette’s personal essay mode. The end result accompanied by a wax cylinder musical recording, creates layers of time and space on the screen and in the mind of the viewer as they imagine similar places that occupy their own memories.
Your Memories was honored with 3rd Best of Show at the Ohio State Fair 2014 Fine Arts Exhibition
