Memory Interference is a psychological incident that occurs when one memory is mistakenly replaced with another during recall. To make this unseen phenomenon visible, I distressed an 8mm movie reel of my own childhood memories by steaming it under high pressure in a pressure cooker. By digitally animating a merger of the distressed and original footage, my goal is to represent the way memory breaks down over time. 
I still exist in the detached layers of emulsion, yet remain suspended above the substrate—fractured and out-of-body—like a memory interfered.
