Activated Memory (2011)

65.3mb mov file, duration 6:28, dimensions 720x480

Sabrina Ratté's Activated Memory is a video based on animated photographs of different Montreal parks. Activated Memory is a journey through a serene landscape where the trees and fields are at once surreal and familiar.

Through the use of video feedback, 3d animation and color manipulations, the pictures render a new kind of space, a virtual world where only fragments of "reality" subsist.

Music composed by Roger Tellier-Craig.
