This work is a project of self-exploration, a journey in search of a forgotten memory. The “forgotten memory” lies between existence and non-existence; it is a gap in a timeline. Two tunnels showcase the duality of the remembering mind as it chases after a distant memory even while it resists finding it. This piece was inspired by the 2004 film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in which the protagonist Joel undergoes a medical procedure to erase the memory of his ex-girlfriend.  Part of Joel’s monologue is written on the pedestal.
