The Invisible Memory-
In this series and after a process of estrangement from my own visual production, I decided to lock some of my photo cards full of images in small Plexiglas boxes.
The only information that we will know about the contents thereof are the number of images and videos contained on the cards, the year and the place where they were taken. On the other hand there are two types of cards. CF cards are used in professional SLR cameras, and they make us sense that the content has a greater intentionality and an artistic or commercial purpose. Conversely SD cards are commonly used in compact cameras, in my case in a small Leica I carry in my bag regularly and usually in many trips.
The content is more heterogeneous and less intentional, full of visual notes and personal pictures. Approximately, each Gigabyte accumulated in these cards contains between 71 and 715 images depending on which quality we chose to keep them in. Thus, thousands of images are condemned to never being seen, observed, read, or printed, being just absolutely immaterial entities and linked to personal memory.
