The project ‘Memory Lane’ consists of a series of sculptures and audio-visual works reproducing relevant places to the childhood of the two authors. 3D scanning and rendering blend the actual environments with their virtual replicas. The final results diverge from the original models. Some elements appear detached, defined and prominent. Others fade, merge with one another; the light behaves unnaturally, what is solid gets intangible, physical laws are subverted. It all allows the typical atmosphere of fantasy or even science-fiction to set in, leading us into realising we are not facing a mere depiction of actual places but of distorted and glorified memories.
By reproducing the sceneries of the authors’ childhood games, ‘Memory Lane’ recovers the pleasure and emotions of those past moments. Ultimately it was their very evocative character that led the authors to artistic creativity later on in life.
