What does the world look like when you don’t know what it looks like? How does a person suffering from dementia experience his or her surroundings?
In Jetske Visser’s film ‘Forgotten Memory’ the viewer is submerged in the world of dementia. From a desire to understand the world of people suffering from this condition, Visser created an image of their hazy, fragile and precarious existence. As a metaphor for the condition, she has transformed a series of everyday objects to demonstrate that things are not always what you expect.
