The Laboratory for Forgetting

Year: 2014

In this photography therapy, participants receive a prescribed roll of film in a blue pill case. The participant is instructed to take pictures of the things they want to forget and then to bury the film roll for at least 39days. After digging it out of the ground, they send it to the laboratory to be developed. The image results are faded, saturated, and swept away by time and the condition of being underground.
