Lydia London

www.lydialondon.co.uk

Lydia London’s video work consists of a series of uncanny and disjointed rooms. She explores ideas about false memory, the unreliability of memory itself and how memories begin to fall apart the more we remember them. The virtual rooms evoke the history of mnemonics yet they are filled with objects that constantly shift and move resisting the fixing we need to make a memory. These imagined spaces draw inspiration from false memory accounts and hallucinations. These strange outputs of the brain have no real place in reality lacking the validity of empirical evidence yet events misremembered, scenes that only one individual can see and extensive false memories both enthralling and banal seem to give insight into parts of our minds still unexplored, the dark waters of electric impulses in our brains beyond our conscious control.
