by Rebecca Spiro

Afterimage, Jan. 2012, v. 39, no. 4, pp. 17-20

In the work of video artists Omer Fast and Kerry Tribe the manifestations of the process of memory are exposed and deconstructed. They demonstrate how we unconsciously access the past and construct a coherent representation from incongruent or even incompatible fragments.

This article describes Omer Fast's video installation "The Casting" and Kerry Tribe's "H.M," while considering how they deal with memory and how it is stored.
