The other day I was trying to think of a musicians name from the 1970s. I remember quite clearly sitting in a friends apartment, spring sun was streaming through the window and he put on a track by some obscure vocalist. I was blown away by this guys voice, but can I rememeber his name? I can remember most of our conversation, which was mostly about sourcing rare music. I used to have a favourite store round the corner from me in when i lived in Brooklyn, Holy Cow Records and at the time they had some great white label discs. But i cannot remember this guys name. I have also lost touch with my friend and the search engines cannot find “singers name I cannot remember, you know the one I heard years ago” Its one of those things I will be doing something totally unrelated and his name will pop into my head, memories are funny like that. This montage is about lost memories, memories that are tangible but just out of reach.

Back to the photomontage, another room. I was very tired the other day and every now and then when I blinked the scene seemed to jump, like time taking a skip. This is where i got the idea for the face of the central character.
