Medium: Audio arrangement 

When memories resurface, they are known to lose their sharpness. 

When memories resurface, we lose sight of what they used to mean in favour of new insight granted by retrospect.

Perhaps the sharpness of a memory is lost as a consequence of the loss of certainty. 

What used to mean one thing, in a new context, now means another.


Using decade-old audio samples, this soundscape of an old factory crane, an arcade, and Space Invaders mimic the flow of consciousness, interrupted by archaic thoughts and ideas which unexpectedly resurface, sometimes causing aggressive ripple effects or internal chain reactions.


Artist: Julian Triandafyllou

This a 15 minute timer, which, according to some estimates, is the average time it takes for a child to die in Gaza since October 2023. The sound of NYE fireworks plays in the background in a field recording by Magnús Bergsson (2024).
