NOSTALGIA

Capstone Thesis


 
I have always been curious why nostalgic visuals constantly flood my thoughts and why combinations of specific smells, colors, and atmospheres 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 perception of the world and our identity can seem sculpted by traditional linear memory, yet, with a closer look, our perception and identity form from past memories overlaid with the present, called multimedia collage memory. Multimedia collage memory is triggered through our senses and perception of specific visuals, smells, tastes, textures, and sounds.

All posters are created by me.
