NOSTALGIA

Capstone Thesis


I have always wondered why certain nostalgic-like visuals from my past constantly pop up in my thoughts and why the combination of specific smells, colors, and atmosphere trigger these visual memories and feelings. Frank Ocean’s songs are very similar to this thought. His songs have two or three competing narratives – different points of view participating in the same story. Ocean says, “That was my version of collage or bricolage. How we experience memory sometimes, it’s not linear. We’re not telling the stories to ourselves, we know the story, we’re just seeing it in flashes overlaid.”

Our mind’s perception of the world and our identity might not be formed through linear memory, but instead, our perception and identity are actively constructed through multimedia collages of our past mixed with the present. This experience of multimedia collage memory is triggered through our senses and perception of certain visuals, smells, tastes, textures, and sounds. 

All posters are created by me.
