False memory syndrome
Everything we’ve been through, we store in our memory. However, our memory is not a very reliable storage medium. Memories fade and are being unconsciously adapted by ourselves. We exaggerate memories and try to replace the lost pieces of it, mix up different situations or ban out whole memories in order to feel better.

When we tell others about our memories, this often is a false form of reality, which is called the False Memory Syndrome. This is different from a lie, in which we consciously adapt our memories.

This project shows six forms (poles) of the false memory syndrome. 30 Original memories, represented by polaroid pictures, are being shown in two phases in which they undergo their false memory syndrome. When memories are at the point of being told to others, it’s the false memory that will be told.
