How does our brain store memories of visual images? How do you see those images in your mind when you try to recall some visual memory of something you have seen earlier?
One Hundred Famous Views of Ego is a ongoing project where I'm trying to deconstruct and interpret those fractalized images from my memory. Every image is a constructed collage of 80-120 separate images taken during one day in one city. A representation of my visual memory.
