“I just moved to the Bay Area, and am coming back to San Diego to show ‘bits and pieces of memory.’ I never had a very good memory – that may be why I take so many photographs and videos. The installation is based on photos and video I took over the years and transformed via editing, painting, and digital manipulation. The idea of defragmentation came from watching a computer defragmenting a hard disk. The installation works the gallery like a large file system – tying together memories while making space for the ones to come.”

Michele Guieu, August 2010.
