Kika Nicolela continues the artist's ongoing examination of memory: over a decade ago, she began working with family films and images, both found footage and her personal archive. Nicolela has always been fascinated by the function that archival images play in the development of our memories and identities. Her mother's Alzheimer's disease has most recently influenced her study.
Nicolela fed an AI her personal archive of family photos and children's drawings for the series. The AI interpreted and blended multiple supplied images and then Nicolela mixed many of the outputs to create the series' multi-layered digital collages.
