Hopes and Dreams II

Hopes and Dreams II, 2018

Created many months after Hopes and Dreams I, Hopes and Dreams II, reinterprets </3 through the lens of retrospect. Hopes and Dreams II, is a diptych depicting Hopes and Dreams I – a decoupaged USB softly cloaked in dried flowers, small script, and a little bit of Copenhagen – from 3 angles (left), and a QR code linking to the glitched, digital innards of an unfinished artistic project with a former flame (right). By glitching the ephemeral remnants, this piece simultaneously removes identifiable markers, and subtly points to the way time disrupts memory.
