    Irina Chmyreva, PhD. Everything in this project is illusive and fragile, like a wing of butterfly. But this wing is really strong, like our connections with family, with our personal "past", and, to continue the metaphor of butterfly's wings, the memorizing consists of a billion of tiny details - like the wing has a billion of scales. So, every detail is important and this project is real example of slow and precised reconstructing of the past

PROJECT MEMORY The project starts when I found an old 8mm tape at my parents’ house and digitized it. I then rediscover a film in which my mother collaborated when I was twenty years old. I capture some frames of the making-of and freeze it on them. The project speaks of losses: the loss of image quality, the loss of my mother. Losses and fragments of his memory and mine. After finding the old tape, I began n to investigate my father’s photographic archive, discovering negatives that were never developed. I come across images of my mother from before I was born and I come across a stranger.
