la lumière comme surmoi/facing the lost
April 17, 2004
a spoken text of a memory from a summer day along the lachine canal was superimposed onto the architectural space of the metro. the participant watched and heard the metro train coming and going, people walking and the turnstile rotating as they listened to a voice recounting and locating a memory. like a photograph that bears the trace of a particular instance of light the image of the narrated memory imprints and in turn becomes a memory as the voice fades into silence.
