Do You Remember the First Time?

Christine Kwan

Kwan is interested in aesthetics of synesthesia, intermedia, and the emotional resonances of memory and dreams. She photographs the effects of innocuous things, whether they be physical objects or sensory perceptions, and the scenes that they trigger, believing these phenomena to be one possible way the mind navigates layers of unorganized clues and stimuli. Echoes of the otherwise forgotten intertwine with our own experiences to create new narratives that fall somewhere between fact and fiction.
