Melting Memories I is a work by Refik Anadol that plays with elements of surface manipulation and the illusion of the picture plane within its generative compositions. The work was created as a video capture of an algorithmically generated process.
Melting Memories I is part of a series of works that was created using a custom software which reads, analyses and visualises datasets collected from Alzheimer's disease research. The resulting visualisations produce an iterative series of works which examines, through shifting forms, the relationship between buildup and decay, coherence and disappearance. The works in the series allow us to reflect on issues of ageing, cognitive decay, and mortality.
