I REMEMBER / THE HOLLOW FEATURES OF WHAT REMAINS is an intense, immersive light installation consisting of dozens of suspended fluorescent tubes organized in a labyrinth-like pattern. The installation focuses on memory, time, and perception, plunging the viewer into a constantly shifting world of light and space. Fluorescent tubes are arranged in a composition which is simultaneously transparent and solid, suggesting a shape but never complete. With defining elements removed, we are left with fragments and memories that are echoes of a space that is no longer there. The tubes are programed to shift on and off, expanding and contracting, creating larger and smaller spaces and new dynamic relationships. With moments of extreme darkness and fleeting sparks of intensity, we are left to process each programmed event comparing what we think we saw, what actually occurred, and how our mind compensates and alters reality. This work will be Zamora’s first piece in Seattle since 2015. Intended to be a fully immersive experience, viewers are invited to walk around and through the installation.
